On January 20, the anniversary eve of the Citizens United Supreme Court ruling, which further privileged corporations over people in our Constitution, NationofChange along with groups across the country are uniting for a day of mass action centered in the San Francisco Financial District.
In the same way that the world has been forced to recognize the practical and symbolic occupation of Wall St. in New York City, we will once again command the national narrative through mass occupation, mobilization, non-violent direct action and disobedience.
- To end corporate person-hood! Corporations are NOT people; Money is NOT speech.
- To expose how Wall St. operates in our midst, attacking our communities, homes, livelihoods, education, environment, democracy, and health.
- To demand that banks stop foreclosing on our neighbors and evicting them from their homes for profit.
- To contribute toward ongoing community fights for social and economic justice against banks and corporations.
- To build and mobilize a broad-based, strategic mass movement asserting the people power of the 99% in San Francisco, the Bay Area, California, and the region.
Join us in San Francisco on January 20th near the ice skating rink at Bradley Manning/Justin Herman Plaza beginning at 6:00am to fight back against the Wall St. banks and corporations that are assaulting ourselves, our environment, and our communities.
This week we are asking our readers to help us raise $10,000 for critical supplies including: access to evictions and foreclosures database, hot spot Internet and phone service for communication, food and drinks for occupiers, personal hygiene and medical supplies, paper and other supplies for fliers and hard-copy media, night vision LED lights for video shoots.

Please Sign Petition - Free Richard Fine // Por favor, Firme la petición - Liberar a Richard Fine
Richard Fine - 70 year old, former US prosecutor, had shown that judges in Los Angeles County had taken "not permitted" payments (called by media "bribes"). On February 20, 2009, the Governor of California signed "retroactive immunities" (pardons) for all judges in Los Angeles. Less than two weeks later, on March 4, 2009 Richard Fine was arrested in open court, with no warrant. He is held ever since in solitary confinement in Los Angeles, California. No judgment, conviction, or sentencing was ever entered in his case.
