RALEIGH, NC: Occupy the Courts

Our Occupy the Courts! will include all three NC Triangle Occupies (Chapel Hill/Carrboro, Durham, Raleigh), university student Occupiers, and a number of Triangle activist groups working together to visibly protest corporate personhood and educate the public! We plan to bring the fun with us, with music, corporate persons costumes, and food! Occupy the Courts will be a one day occupation of Federal courthouses across the country, including the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., on Friday January 20, 2012. We will lead the charge on the judiciary which created — and continues to expand — corporate personhood rights. Americans across the country are on the march, and they are marching OUR way. They carry signs that say, “Corporations are NOT people! Money is NOT Speech!” And they are chanting those truths at the top of their lungs! The time has come to make these truths evident to the courts.
