Event Description :
Part of nationwide rallies against corporate domination of politics and fair elections, created by two movements. The Other 98% is a grassroots network of concerned citizens, partnered with MoveOn.org, standing against corporate influence in government "... to make our democracy work for the rest of us."
From the organizers:"We will not see change in this country that benefits us all until we end corporate influence in our political system. Cost to attend the rally & sign the pledge $0, benefit if we help change the system to work for everyone, priceless!"
The groups are also asking citizens to take a pledge, which can be reviewed and endorsed at http://www.standfordemocracy.org/ The agenda is to overturn the Citizens United Supreme Court ruling (allowing unlimited corporate spending on elections), push for passage of the Fair Elections Act, and a lobbyist reform act.
Interested citizens can join the "Other 98%" populist reform campaign in the NY Capital Region by calling 518 583-4326.
