Asian Americans United:
Keeping Up the Casino Fight!

Read all about it!

It's all over the news: the casino industry is tanking across the country. They're struggling to stay in business and out of bankruptcy. They're plagued by scandal and pay-to-play politics. They're being exposed as predatory.

Here's what the press is saying . . .

"Shouldering into Philadelphia may prove to be the American casino industry's Waterloo. . ." - Wall Street Journal op-ed, January 2, 2009

[The state's gaming process has gone so far off the rails] "because of the haphazard rush to ram gaming down the throats of Philadelphia's residents with too little public input . . ." - Philadelphia Inquirer editorial, January 18, 2009

"If the book relating the history of gaming in Pennsylvania ever gets written, it's hard to imagine the word "debacle" not in the title." - Philadelphia Daily News editorial, January 13, 2009

Read Helen Gym's Philadelphia Daily News op-ed: "Philly's Slots Bailout," January 15, 2009: "As the casino industry tanks nationwide, the city stubbornly continues to hitch its wagon to this crapshoot, wasting time and resources and earning itself a sorry national reputation to boot."



CHANGE OF DATE

NOTE!
We've changed the date of our
AAU Anti-Casino Fundraiser
& Party
(originally set for Feb.7)

We'll keep you posted.

Join the Fight!

Collecting petitions is a way of talking to your neighbors, fellow commuters and co-workers about the issue.

It creates a chance for regular citizens to take a stand.

And it organizes us for the upcoming actions that we will mount to block the casino.

We will be collecting petitions every week near the Market East transit hub.

Contact AAU if you want to get involved with our petition campaign.

Or download a copy of the petition on our website and collect signatures in your own neighborhood, organization, or workplace.


DIG IN FOR A LONG FIGHT:
We will challenge them every step of the way!
