ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —One way to usher in 2012 and build grassroots momentum for an American Spring is the New Years' Revolution - March for Poor and Working People on Friday, Dec. 30, starting at 1 p.m. at Robinson Park in downtown Albuquerque.

“We march to prove, not that we are capable of dreaming, but that we are waking up,” organizers said in a prepared release.

“This march is not only to show our strength, but to break ground on a lasting structure of solidarity to meet the needs of our community,” according to the Anti-Capitalist Working Group of Occupy/(un)Occupy Albuquerque. “We must start from the beginning—with connections between people who have the power to help themselves and others, who need only to organize themselves to begin the work of building a better world.”

The march has already earned the endorsement of city’s leading advocates for social and economic justice, including the Industrial Workers of the World, The Party for Socialism and Liberation, Food Not Bombs, The Albuquerque Solidarity Network, La Raza Unida, Organizers in the Land of Enchantment, Southwest Organizing Project, Central NM Labor Council, Vets for Peace, Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice, and Stop the War Machine.

The march route is being finalized and will includes several stops in the greater downtown, concluding at the point of departure, Robinson Park, at 4 p.m.

For Facebook users, the march has an event page.
