ASHEVILLE, NC: Occupy the Courts

4:30 Rally--speakers, petitions to sign, building enthusiasm and knowledge! 5:00 Walk to Patton Ave to stand near the Federal District Courthouse; marvelous signage, and special guests! "Supreme Court Justices" and "Ms. Statue of Liberty"! Rally ends at 5:30 or maybe longer--weather dependent. 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.
