Down With Corporate Extremists
Sunday | January 27th | 11:45am - 1:00pm
205 Wolf Road, Albany Holiday Inn
Occupy Albany and community allies have learned that right wing extremists including Grover Norquist, the NYS Petroleum Council and the President of Citizens United (the group that brought the Supreme Court case establishing unlimited corporate expenditures in elections) will be traveling to Albany in an attempt to influence elected officials at the NYS Conservative Party annual conference.Collectively these groups and individuals advocate: (i) increasing economic inequality via more tax cuts for the 1%, (ii) promoting fracking and risking environmental and climate destruction for the sake of profit, and (iii) allowing the unlimited influence of big money to control our elections.
We must stand-up and make clear that this is not acceptable. We intend to gather with banners and signs outside the Holiday Inn just as these forces arrive at noon to begin their conference. We will then hold a 12:30pm press conference and speak-out drawing public attention to this gathering as a microcosm of what is wrong with our economic and political systems.
