The Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign is building a movement that unites the poor across color lines. Poverty afflicts Americans of all colors. Daily more and more of us are downsized and impoverished. We share a common interest in uniting against the prevailing conditions and around our vision of a society where we all have the right to health care, housing, living wage jobs, and access to quality primary, secondary, and higher education.

The Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign includes people of many backgrounds. We are mothers, fathers, children, and grandparents; we are the unemployed, the working poor, the downsized, the homeless, the victims of welfare reform and NAFTA, the cast-asides of the new economy; we are social workers, religious leaders, labor leaders, artists, lawyers, and other people of conscience; we are young and old; we live in rural areas and in urban centers.

We are committed to uniting the poor as the leadership base for a broad movement to abolish poverty everywhere and forever. We work to accomplish this aim through the promotion of economic human rights, named in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as Articles 23, 25, and 26. These articles state our right to such provisions as housing, health care, a living wage job, and education. The founding creed of the United States of America, which asserts our rights to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, inspired the formulation of these human rights. Our government signed the UDHR in 1948; its full implementation would mean that our country would be living out the true meaning of its creed. This American Dream is possible because our country is the richest and most powerful in the world.

We do not seek pity. We do seek power to end conditions that threaten all of us with economic human rights violations denying us our birthrights to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

All of us here, as in myself, at FUCKYESMARKWEBBER, would like to extend good luck and best wishes with love to Cheri Honkala as she fights for the vote for Sheriff of Philadelphia this week. If you live in the area, please be sure to VOTE for her on November 8th!

Thank you!

Mark and his little brother have a message for the voters of Philadelphia!

Cheri Honkala is running for Sheriff of Philadelphia to keep families in their homes, vote November 8th! 

Mark with his mother, Cheri Honkala.

Because I run this blog, I am allowed to do this, dig?

Cheri Honkala vows to serve the interests of the people  instead of the interests of the banks by “Keeping Families in Their  Homes” until the economic climate in Philadelphia changes.
Honkala is a tireless advocate for the  nation’s poor and homeless. She founded the local Kensington Welfare  Rights Union (KWRU) and the national Poor Peoples Economic Human Rights  Campaign (PPEHRC). Honkala was included in Philadelphia Magazine’s list  of 100 Most Powerful Philadelphians and was named Philadelphia Weekly’s  “Woman of the Year” in 1997. Cheri Honkala’s run for Sheriff comes as a  last resort to help people and families who have nowhere to turn after a  corrupt Sheriff’s Office still can’t come up with millions of dollars  worth of real-estate auction receipts. Honkala vows to fight for the  working class homeowner who has been left to live in the streets after  the Wall Street financial class was bailed out.

Donate now to Cheri’s campaign and keep people in their homes and off the streets in Philadelphia. Even if you do not live near or around Philly, remember it only takes one person to start a fire and make a difference.

Cheri Honkala is the first woman to run for Sheriff of Philadelphia and the first and only Sheriff candidate to run on a zero evictions platform. On September 20th, 2011 her son, actor and director Mark Webber (Explicit Ills, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World) joined Cheri in Philadelphia to campaign. They held a press conference. This is it.

This is my mother Cheri Honkala. My mother and I were homeless for a couple years when I was 10 years old. Since then my mother has become one of the most effective human rights activists in the world. Due to the foreclosure crisis happening in this country, she has decided to run for Sheriff in Philadelphia to personally prevent foreclosures of peoples homes.

Please share this video. We can make an impact.

It’s up to us.
