Direct Action Highlight: #MicCheckWallSt Money Drop
Posted On June 20th, 2012 by Ella
This Fourth of July #MicCheckWallSt, a Seattle based think tank, will declare independence from Citizens United—the Supreme Court ruling which declared money as speech, corporations as people, and effectively paved the way for unlimited corporate political influence through monetary contributions.
How will #MicCheckWallSt make their message heard? By using the very tool that is silencing us all: money. On July 4, 2012, #MicCheckWallSt will be throwing thousands of printed dollar bills out into the streets of Seattle and as the bills go back into general circulation they’ll pass through the hands and minds of tens of thousands of Americans.
To encourage the amplification of this action, #MicCheckWallSt has put together a template so anyone anywhere can organize a coordinated money drop. Imagine hundreds of anti-Citizens United dollar bills falling down atop buildings that likely house the very corporations that pervert the use of money to see their interestes met despite the cost to the public.
Still not sure how this will work? Get more information and read #MicCheckWallSt’s call to action here: http://miccheckwallst.org/2012/05/21/4th-of-july-money-drop/
