A message from Occupy Newport to the citizens of Newport
On Monday, February 6 at 6:00 PM, members of Occupy Newport and various local citizens will ask the Newport City Council to adopt a resolution of support for an amendment to the US Constitution which would reverse the 2010 ‘Citizens United’ Supreme Court decision and declare that corporations are not ‘persons’ with the same rights, protections and legal privileges as human beings.
This appeal will be made at City Hall in the Council meeting chamber.
Please come and show your support! A convincing attendance is needed for Councilors to understand how important this is to the citizens of Newport and Lincoln County. By investing an hour or two you can tell your children and grandchildren you stood up for democracy at such a dangerous time in our history.
Speaking time is limited so you may not get an opportunity to address the Council directly but your presence WILL be noted.
We hope to see you there.
