Occupy Newport back on the streets – Election and Advisory Vote on Corporate Personhood

Occupy Newport, Monday Afternoon
Highway 101 @ 20

A small but spirited group of Newport Occupiers stood on all four corners of Highways 101 and 20 Monday, urging motorists passing by to take their money out of big national banks and put it into small community banks. Occupiers blame the large banks for contributing to the crash of the economy back in 2008.

Others carried signs decrying the huge profits that insurance companies are making at the expense of those who are getting inadequate medical care when they get it at all. An estimated 45 million Americans go without medical care due to the cost.

Others carried signs demanding that money be removed from American politics, while others support a U.S. Constitutional amendment that reverses a recent Supreme Court decision declaring that corporations are people, and therefore have the power to spend as much as they want on election races around the country.

Occupier organizer Rio Davidson said that as the country winds down to election day November 6th, Newport Occupiers will remind motorists and those passing by on the sidewalk what they feel is at stake for the country and the local community.

Occupy Newport has their own advisory question on the ballot asking the voters of Lincoln County if they would support a constitutional amendment to reverse the Supreme Court ruling on corporate personhood and to remove private money from national and regional elections. Davidson said they’ll be demonstrating at Highway 101 and 20 as well as going door-to-door in the county, seeking to educate and encourage a yes vote on the measure.

A few driving by yelled at the demonstrators, using obscenities that can’t be printed here. General hostilities toward occupiers seemed to indicate that America is overrun with lazy bums who just need to go back to work and that the answer to the country’s economic malaise is for the Democrats, and President Obama in particular, to get out of the way of the job creators and allow the economy to recover.
