Dear MoveOn member,
I’m putting together an amazing event here in Hurleyville on Sunday, Apr. 15, 2012, at 10:00 AM and I want you to come! I’m one of more than 800 people across the country who have stepped up to plan a 99% Spring action training.
We’re going to prepare ourselves to join a huge wave of progressive direct action nationwide this spring. All over America, the 99% movement is getting ready for 60 days of protests, sit-ins, rallies, marches, and more this spring—all aimed and confronting the power, greed, and influence of the 1%.
It’s exciting and I hope you can be part of it! The training is filling up fast but there’s still room for more folks.
I jumped in to do this because I want to see the 99% Spring take off in a big way, and I want all of us in Hurleyville to help make it happen. The training is on Sunday, Apr. 15, 2012, at 10:00 AM. Will you join in?
Our movement will be holding huge rallies in every major city on Tax Day to call out the 1% who refuse to pay their fair share. We’ll be gathering massive crowds to confront CEOs and top executives at annual shareholder meetings of Wall Street banks, dirty energy polluters, and corporations that refuse to treat workers fairly. And we’ll be doing everything we can to call out the corrupting influence of corporate money on our elections.
At the training I’m putting together here in Hurleyville, we’ll be preparing ourselves to take part in these bold actions and to build connections with other progressives who want to see a 99% Spring in America.
We’ll practice telling the story of what happened to our economy and what a different future could look like, we’ll learn the history of nonviolent direct action, and we’ll train and plan to take direct action ourselves—in the footsteps of Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.—to win change.
We have an amazing shared history of everyday people using direct action to transform the political landscape in this country from the civil rights movement to Occupy Wall Street.
This spring, I want to you join me in becoming a part of that legacy right here in Hurleyville. Will you join in this April?
Thanks for all you do.
