Occupy the Capitol

Location: Sacramento

Thousands of students, parents, teachers, and workers will flood into Sacramento. How long we stay will be up to you.
Join us to demand that Wall St. and the 1% pay to refund education, jobs, and essential services!

10 am - Mass March * Location TBA
11 am - Rally at the Capitol Building
12:30 pm - Lunch at the Capitol Building
1:30 pm - March on Wall St. lobbyists from the Capitol building
4 pm to ? - General Assembly and Speakout! at the Capitol Building
It's bad enough they're a day late and a dollar short, trying to "me too" a movement that's already died out, but to do this on a day when school is in session and teachers will have to take a day off? Such great role models. Disgusting.

CTA is an embarrassment. I couldn't be more proud not to be a member of that union.

Update, 2/13/12: Turns out ACORN is involved:
A re-branded ACORN branch in California is raising money to help fund an upcoming "Occupy" protest in Sacramento, has learned.

The Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment sent out letters this month pleading for contributions of up to $20,000 for buses, food, printing, sound and other supplies for an upcoming event dubbed "Occupy the Capitol."

If it's going to be an embarrassment forever then why would you want it expunged from history books? I'm sure everyone whose capable of self-reflection can attest to educational value of embarrassment.

How are the "Occupy" folks to grow as people unless they're reminded of this regrettable episode?
