Will You Risk Arrest to Save Democracy? Sign-Up for D.C. Sit-In Coming this April

Big Money in Politics is a curse on the United States. No other issue or problem can be seriously addressed until Congress represents American voters, instead of wealthy donors.

Sit-In with Thousands. Save Democracy for Millions. (Link)

The folks at Democracy Spring are organizing a massive act of civil disobedience scheduled for April in order to protest the corrupting influence of money in politics. Be there, or be square!

It’s time to take mass nonviolent action on a historic scale to save our democracy. If at least 1,000 people pledge to risk arrest by December 15th, we will organize one of the largest civil disobedience actions in a generation in Washington D.C. next April. We will call on Congress to take immediate action to end the corruption of big money in politics and ensure free and fair elections in which every American has an equal voice

The campaign will begin with a march from the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia to Washington, D.C. where, if Congress has failed to meet our demand, thousands will gather to reclaim the US Capitol in a powerful, peaceful, and massive sit-in that no one can ignore. Join us!

— DemocrPcy Spring

They already have nearly 600 people signed up. Add your name to Save Democracy.

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
