Occupy the Courts
A Day of Action Against "Citizens United"

Friday, January 20, 2012

On Friday, January 20 people throught our entire nation will take action at court houses in protest of the infamous "Citizens United v. FEC" court case. This action will take place on the second aniversary of the case. This decision gave corporations further power to influence elections with their money.

The message of the action is both simple and true:
Corporations are NOT people! Money is NOT speech!

The event will take place at three locations in Missouri:
