Thousands of New Yorkers Rally

Thousands Rally At City Hall
A massive budget backlash came to lower Manhattan on Thursday. Tens of thousands of New Yorkers marched on City Hall, rallying to stop proposed funding cuts. The rally cries of labor unions, community groups and families outside City Hall could be heard throughout lower Manhattan. Desperation for an economic lifeline brought out more than 50,000 people along several blocks of Broadway in a self-described "Rally For New York." Their message for Gov. David Paterson came in the form of booming chants: "No more cuts! No more cuts!" Everyday New Yorkers had their own personal messages for the governor as well. "Governor Paterson, I wish you could have an open heart that we are going to suffer if this budget cut goes through," said China Lankford of Jamaica.

Brown Woos Obama On Global Deal

Gordon Brown hopes to forge a partnership with President Barack Obama in Washington this week, to call for a “global new deal” to lift the world out of recession. As he prepares for his first White House visit since the president’s inauguration, the prime minister has hinted that he is ready to make further tax cuts to boost the UK economy. Brown will meet Obama on Tuesday and address a joint session of Congress on Wednesday. Aides say he has both to demonstrate to a sceptical British public that he commands the respect of the president, and to persuade the American political establishment that global action is needed to rescue the US economy.

Stumbling CBC Seeks Federal Help

I have not seen a slide that precipitous and that deep in my entire life," Richard Stursberg, executive vice-president for English services, told employees yesterday.
