1/21/2012 marks the 2 year anniversary of the infamous Citizens United v. FEC Supreme Court decision.
This dangerous ruling dictates that Corporations are allowed to donate UNLIMITED funds to political campaigns as a form of Constitutionally protected “free-speech” and sets the stage for the auctioning of our politicians. It is the most open and direct attack by the 1% on one of America’s most prominent founding principles: Democracy.
It has now become necessary that we, the people, invoke OUR free-speech rights to eclipse the megaphone of the 1% and end the corporate electioneering of OUR Representatives. Through the People’s microphone, we can dismantle the counterfeit democracy that has usurped our governance and build a more perfect union that serves the true will of the governed.
Join us as we exercise our inalienable rights to peaceably assemble and petition our government for a redress of grievances.
When: Saturday, 1/19/2012, immediately after the General Assembly (approximately 2:00pm)
Where: In front of City Hall on 1st & Virginia St.
What: We will march in the streets from City Hall to the Federal Building (Virginia & Liberty). We will use the People’s Mic to air any and all grievances the public has towards its elected officials.
