PORTLAND, ME: Citizens United v. FEC Two Year Anniversary Demonstration

Join us in protesting the two-year anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling that allows corporations to spend unlimited funds trying to influence our elections. We will commemorate Citizens United with a symbolic funeral (including a casket) for democracy and call for a constitutional amendment that says that corporations are NOT people and money is NOT speech. There is a possibility that nationally known environmental activist Bill McKibben of 350.org will be in Maine that day and join us. We will be on the sidewalks in front of and on the side of the US District Court building on Federal Street (156 Federal St.). Plan to dress in black (I will also have some black armbands) and bring signs. If you are willing to speak please let me know!
