Today– January 20– is a date that has gone down in infamy. Today is the anniversary of the landmark Citizens United case.
To commemorate the Supreme Court case that struck down campaign finance reform, ruled that money is speech, and paved the way for obscene amounts of money to flood our elections, Occupy Tucson, MoveOn.org, and other groups nationwide will “Occupy the Courts”.
Protesters are being asked to simply display relevant signs, support petitions to amend the U.S. Constitution, or register to vote early.
Planned activities include:
10:00 a.m.: press conference
12:00 noon: march though downtown Tucson
4:00 p.m.: rally with music & speakers
8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.: open microphone for comments and local entertainers
