THE OCCUPY MOVEMENT IS NOT FOR SALE.
On Wednesday President Obama will visit the French Quarter to attend a campaign fundraiser at the House of Blues. This event is being billed as “Occupy the Vote.” This suggests that the Occupy Movement is supporting a fundraiser by the 1% for a holder of public office who has been the fervent supporter of a trillion dollar plus bailout of the banking giants at the expense of everyone else. Nothing could be further from the truth!
Here is what Occupy NOLA will be requesting from the President on his July 25th visit to New Orleans.
*Withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan now!*
*Stop the demolition of the Iberville Housing Development*
*Issue an executive order preventing Jindal and company from gutting medicaid and public hospital funding*
*Issue an executive order directing federal authorities to not implement the police state measures of the recently passed NDAA law**
Give President Obama a 99% Welcome:
