SIOUX FALLS, SD: Occupy the Courts

Occupy Sioux Falls will be hosting an event in front of the Federal Court house in Sioux Falls to bring awareness to the Supreme Court decision of Citizens United. This decision allows unlimited and unaccountable funds to be used for the election of politicians of the monied interests choice. When money is speech, the people have no voice. 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.
