The Millionaire Staircase, Capitol Bldg,
GET on the Bus at UNION SQUARE
Tuesday, May 7th, at 11am NYS Senate Republicans are holding a sham hearing at the NYS Capitol Bldg. at which members of the public are not allowed to testify. From 11:00am to 1:30pm, they’ll be in Room 124 arguing why it is better for corporations and the 1% to fund elections than the public & the 99%.
This is unacceptable! Join us beginning at 10:00am on the West Steps of the Capitol. We’ll gather up and at 10:20am we’ll enter the Capitol and line hallway leading to Capitol Room 124 with signs and banners, so that everyone who enters the hearing will see how the public really feels.
Then, at 1:45pm, you are cordially invited to join us and Rev. Billy on the Million Dollar Staircase for a wedding of the NYS politicians opposing campaign finance and the corporations that support them. Come dressed as a millionaire to “support” them or a member of the 99% to oppose them: the choice is yours.
We need public financing of elections, not more corporations controlling our electoral process. If you agree please join us Tuesday!
