Let the People Vote Rally- San Francisco

The CA Supreme Court voted 5-1 to remove Prop 49 from the ballot this November essentially removing the people’s right to have our voice heard on a very important advisory measure that would urge congress to act towards overturning the disastrous Citizen’s United Supreme Court ruling that fueled the fire of income inequality and severely weakened our democracy by equating money with speech and corporations with people.

It’s time to rise up together and let the CA Supreme Court know what we think of their ruling…this Wednesday, August 20th the people’s voice will be heard! 99Rise is coordinating peaceful demonstrations at the three Supreme Court offices SF, LA, and Sacramento. Find your location and make your voice heard, remember that together our voice is more powerful than any amount of money being used to silence it. All together now: Money ain’t speech, Corporations aren’t people!!

August 20, 2014 at 12pm - 2pm

  • When 6 judges can silence the 38 million people of California, yet Big Money has privileged access to the halls of power, that is #DemocracyDenied Invite friends, family, coworkers. Make tomorrow a truly grassroots victory! Many among our coalition are represented among those scheduled to speak: we'll have a skit from the Really Big Bucks of Move to Amend Sonoma County, Matt Greenberg of Money Out Voters In, and our own Lawrence Abbott, to name a few. Most importantly, we'll have all of you! #wethepeople
  • We have two people planning to risk arrest as of today. Who else is willing to put their body on the line for democracy?
