The 1% don’t cast many votes, but they seem to own the Capitol anyway. They certainly pay for it, with their huge campaign donations and their army of corporate lobbyists.
Join us on Wednesday November 30th to highlight the 1% agenda in Olympia and speak out for what the 99% want: jobs, not cuts. But be warned: we expect representatives of the 1% to hold a counter-demonstration, so be on the lookout for ballgowns, top hats, and signs calling for still more cuts.
The State Legislature begins a special session this week to consider $2 billion in new cuts to critical state programs — cuts that come on top of the $10 billion they’ve already cut over the past few years.
We’ve sacrificed enough and we have a different vision for Washington.
We want something better for our state. That’s why community groups, working people, students, faith leaders, and others will be coming to Olympia this week for a week of action to Occupy the Capitol. Together, we’ll raise our voices and say “enough is enough — we need jobs, not cuts.”
Thousands gathered at the Capitol on Monday, starting off the week of action with a bang. There will be more action today. Then on Wednesday, Working Washington will be in Olympia to call attention to the agenda of the 1%.
Join us this Wednesday, November 30 in Olympia. At 10 am, we’ll meet in the Columbia Room in the legislative building in Olympia at 10 am and spread the word about what the top 1% really want from our state. Then at 12 noon we’ll rally on the steps of the Capitol and shine a public light on what the 1% has been doing all these years and call to account those who do their bidding.
The 1% may show up with their caviar and monocles and their proposals to slash education, health care and other public services. But we won’t back down.
