RIVERSIDE, CA: Occupy the Courts

An action aimed at raising the awareness of people in the Inland Empire of the widening gap between the ultra-wealthy and the rest of us because of the machinations of corporations who not only own our courts but own and control every aspect of our lives. We are acting on behalf of everyone who finds themselves unemployed, homeless, and bankrupt, who are well on their way to becoming so, or who care about those who are. We are the 99%! 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.
