A Call to Action

Make the Rich Pay!

Occupy NOLA invites you to protest at the home of State Representative and House majority leader Anthony (Tony) Ligi.

Gather between 2 and 3 PM at Occupy the Stage, 2735 C Toulouse St  New Orleans, LA

Leave at 3PM to caravan to Rep. Anthony Ligi’s house for a 4 PM rally at 5216 Senac Dr. Metairie


Louisiana is facing roughly $859 million in federal Medicaid funding for this year.

Ligi supports Jindal’s legislation pushed by ALEC includes school vouchers, charter and virtual schools, public retirement reform, Medicaid reform, public employee health benefits reform and sweeping privatization—all part and parcel of Jindal’s legislative agenda. Ligi received $20,700 in contributions from ALEC.

Tell Ligi that Louisiana will not stand for this!

We’ll have a route by Friday (trying to decide if we should take the interstate I-10 or Earhart expressway). Of course, you can just meet us there too!

Key Demands

  • No Cuts to Medicaid
  • No Closure of Public Hospitals or Cuts
  • No to School Vouchers and Yes to Public Schools

Please join us. You can RSVP to Occupy NOLA’s Facebook event.
