Occupy Activist and other Groups, Taking On The One Percent Feb 24th, 2014!
Any day the U.S. Supreme Court could issue its ruling in the case McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission. In a nutshell, if the court rules badly in McCutcheon, it would pretty much do for individuals what Citizens United did for corporations. Specifically, those who can afford to do so could directly contribute up to $6 million per election cycle to a single party and its candidates.
Join us in a rapid response event as we hold a rally the same day as the ruling. Please Read Breakdown of Events Below!

“We Will Not Be Silent” is a statement attributed to a student resistance movement in Nazi Germany called The White Rose. It is a statement of purpose, intended to inspire acts of resistance and dissent against abuses of power.
On Jan 13th, 2014. George W. Bush will be speaking at the National Retail Federation’s “Big Show” in New York City.
And WE WILL NOT BE SILENT! Stand Up, Fight Back!
So many people across the world know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that George W. Bush has committed crimes against humanity. Yet this home-grown war criminal is being honored with speaking engagements across this country. This dishonors all of us in this country who have longed for justice; it is an insult to our dignity and our mind.
