Event: Jan 21, 2012 – Occupy the Corporations!

Uncategorized

On January 21, as a part of our Nationwide Day of Action to overturn Citizens United v. FEC and end corporate rule, Public Citizen is working with local activists to ‘apprehend’ corporate impostors posing as ‘people’ with the same constitutional rights as the rest of us.

We’ll be exposing these impostors to the light of day in cities and towns throughout the nation, and together with local activists we’ll be calling on their elected officials to support a constitutional amendment that would overturn Citizens United and end corporate domination of our democracy.

Comment: For those in NYC who are interested, visit this event webpage and this flyer (front & back). This is not just a one day event but will become an on-going effort to publicly expose corporate connections to the political and legal systems and move from protest to reconciliation.
