SALT LAKE CITY
Looks like some Occupy groups are doing actions around the ALEC annual meeting in Salt Lake City, July 23-28.
AND ANOTHER ONE:
AND ANOTHER ONE:
Since our day of action on February 29th there has been enormous momentum against ALEC. Our actions were critical in raising awareness about ALEC and escalating the pressure on its members to cease participating in this nefarious organization. It moves closer to nonexistence everyday!
Groups that have dropped ALEC since F29 include Johnson and Johnson, Walmart, Amazon.com, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Kraft, Wendy’s, Mars, Inc., Arizona Public Service, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards Scantron, The National Association of Charter School Authorizers, Kaplan, Procter & Gamble, Yum! Brands, five Pennsylvania legislators, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Elsevier, American, Intuit, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
We have been in contact with organizers in Salt Lake City and want to encourage folks to connect with them about the national mobilization that will coincide with ALEC's annual meeting from July 23rd to the 28th. We need to keep the pressure up to continue to challenge this organization and build our movement for systemic change. You can find all the relevant information at their national call-out website:
Thanks again for all your great work! Our resistance is growing. See you in Salt Lake City,
