For Immediate Release January 9, 2012
OCCUPY NH PRIMARY DEMONSTRATION TO CHALLENGE CORPORATE POWER AND MONEY IN ELECTIONS
What: Occupy New Hampshire along with other Occupy Movements have staged a die-in at the Obama Campaign Headquarters in Manchester, NH to dramatize how corporate money and the influence of the 1% in the election process is killing American Democracy.
Where: Obama Campaign Headquarters, 228 Maple Street, Manchester, NH 03103
Who: Occupy movement protestors, unemployed people, workers, students, youth and others who are angry about the way corporate money is influencing the election process, with a particular focus on corporate person hood and Wall Street Donations.
Why: Corporate money and donations from the wealthy are corrupting the American political process. The Supreme Courts recent decision saying corporations are people only increases the power of corporations in the political process. Occupy protesters from across the North East are coming together to demand that corporate money and large donations are removed from the political process. Corporate money and the corrupt and undue influence of the 1% in the election process is killing American Democracy.
