Leafleting at Gleadell Street Market

5 10 2009

Four of us braved the cold on Saturday morning to promote the Rally at Gleadell Street market in Richmond. The message was generally well received – it’s great to see the local community getting behind it. We even spoke to a parent of one of the former workers made redundant from Solar Systems, who was very happy to see us out supporting the cause. We dispatched an estimated 1000 flyers over six hours!

With less than a week leading up to the rally time is running out to spread the word. We will be leafleting at the following events this week:

Tuesday (6 Oct), 4:00 pm – some of us are meeting at the main Melbourne University tram stop on Swanston Street to hand out leaflets
Thursday (8 Oct), 10:00 am – some of us will leaflet a construction union delegates meeting at Trades Hall in the council chamber
Saturday (10 Oct), from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm – again at Gleadell Street Market in Richmond
Saturday (10 Oct), from 12:00 pm – some of us will leafleting the Rally against the War in Afghanistan starting in the City Square corner Collins & Swanston Streets
Sunday (11 Oct – day of the rally), 10:00am – 12:00pm – Markets at Collingwood Children’s Farm

We invite you to come along to any of these places to support our campaign, help us promote the rally, and meet the friendly people behind the action to save Solar Systems. If you would like to come, you can email savesolarsystems@googlegroups.com or simply show up at any of the above dates/times/locations.
