Join a national campaign against corporate personhood! Some of our own Occupiers have gone to Washington D.C. to Occupy Congress. Show your solidarity here in Reno, where we’re working to convince the City Council to denounce the notion that corporations have the same rights as people.

Tuesday (1/17): Occupy Congress in solidarity with the national movement. We have a permit to demonstrate at the Bruce R. Thompson Courthouse & Federal Building, 400 S Virginia, 8am to 6pm. Occupy Carson City will join us from 11am to 1pm.

Wednesday (1/18): General Assembly at Moana Springs 6 p.m.

Friday (1/20): Occupy the Courts. We have a permit to demonstrate at the Bruce R. Thompson Courthouse & Federal Building, 400 S Virginia, 8am to 3:30pm. However, we will be asking for a volunteer to take ownership for the permit at the GA on 1/18.

Saturday (1/21): General Assembly outside City Hall at 1 p.m. followed by March in protest of the Citizens United v. Supreme Court decision. We will be marching in the streets of downtown to the Federal Building with RPD escorts. Stay tuned for more details on Saturday coming soon! This is going to be BIG. 

*PLEASE NOTE: THE SATURDAY G.A. WILL BE HELD AT CITY HALL, NOT AT MOANA SPRINGS.

Wednesday (1/25): Reno City Council Meeting. We are on the agenda to petition the City to speak out against corporate personhood. We will be presenting the Council with the signed letters from all of you!

Occupy City Hall will be outside City Hall Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Close to 1,000 letters have been signed in support of the Bernie Sanders petition. Come down and sign yours too!

As you may know, Black Friday is the first official day of the holiday shopping season and the biggest shopping day of the year. Shoppers nationwide stand for hours overnight in the freezing cold, all for a chance to be the first to snag the best deals at multinational chain stores (VIDEO). Inundated with nonstop commercials and advertising, it is easy to see why Americans spend their hard-earned money at major retailers. But did you know that only 43¢ of every dollar spent in a big chain store is reinvested in the local economy? [Source]

Here are just a few ways locally owned businesses help the Reno community and economy:

Positive Economic Impact
When you shop with locally owned businesses, 68¢ out of every dollar is reinvested locally.

Local Businesses = Jobs
Small businesses account for the largest share of net new jobs generated each year, and locally based business provide some of the most stable employment opportunities in a community. For all their economic power, the number of jobs provided by global corporations relative to the world’s workforce is small. [Source]

Local Business Leaders Invest in Our Community
Local businesses are owned by people who live in this community, and are more invested in the community’s future.

Your Taxes Are Put to Good Use
Local businesses in town centers require comparatively little infrastructure investment and make more efficient use of public services as compared to nationally owned stores entering the community.

See you on Friday, bright and early!
