    Hi everyone, In Portland there is a march and rally to protest the cutback on funding for postal service. This will mean layoffs and no delivery on Saturday.

      Hi everyone,
      In Portland there is a march and rally to protest the cutback on funding for postal service. This will mean layoffs and no delivery on Saturday. In response the postal workers unions are calling for a nationwide protest. Below is one of the protests taking place in Portland, Oregon, USA

      In solidarity

      Family friendly! Kids welcome! Drum corps & lively chants! Music! Flags & signs to carry! Forecast -- Sunny, high of 51 degrees. Done by 3:30. Come just for the 2 pm rally if you can only stay a half hour. We need a big crowd to set an example for other cities!

      · These bills would

      2. End Saturday delivery
      3. Close thousands of community post offices
      4. Close half the mail processing plants
