Purpose

Corporate media and the Police have taken drastic measures to suppress our first amendment right to peaceably assemble.

They have spent millions of tax payers dollars to interfere with peaceful protests, marches and actions that bring light to corporate corruption, corporate collusion with our government and politicians and the inequities between the very wealthy and the rest of us.

The brutal tactics they have used to bring fear and suppress our message has harmed students, veterans and peaceful protesters nationwide and include pepper spray, tear gas, baton beatings, oppressive riot gear and aiming their loaded weapons at innocent citizens.

In Zuccoti park, New York they prevented the press from witnessing the removal of peaceful protesters and restricted airspace over the park to prevent the press from practicing their right of freedom of the press and free speech.

On November 29th at noon we will hold a peaceful protest/picket to show Corporate media and the Corporate owned Police that WE KNOW OUR RIGHTS.

This action coincides with the 1:00 pm court appearance of the Jamison Square Protestors.

Please bring signs that send the message that it is our first amendment right of the people peaceably to assemble and to address the government for redress of grievances.

The First Amendment:

CONGRESS SHALL MAKE NO LAW RESPECTING AN ESTABLISHMENT OF RELIGION, OR PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF; OR ABRIDGING THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH, OR OF THE PRESS; OR THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE PEACEABLY TO ASSEMBLE, AND TO PETITION THE GOVERNMENT FOR A REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES.
