National day of civil disobedience to shut down business as usual for ALEC corporations.

[Description]

Occupy Portland calls for a national day of non-violent civil disobedience targeting corporations who are members of ALEC, one of the most successful mechanisms that the 1% uses to control legislation. We are asking people around the country to choose members of ALEC in their home towns and SHUT DOWN BUSINESS AS USUAL.

Occupy Portland calls for a national day of non-violent direct action to reclaim our voices and challenge our society's obsession with profit and greed by shutting down the corporations. We are rejecting a society that does not allow us control of our future. We will reclaim our ability to shape our world in a democratic, cooperative, just and sustainable direction.

We call on people to target corporations that are part of the American Legislative Exchange Council which is a prime example of the way corporations buy off legislators and craft legislation that serves the interests of corporations and not people. They used it to create the anti-labor legislation in Wisconsin and the racist bill SB 1070 in Arizona among so many others. They use ALEC to spread these corporate laws around the country. Read the full call to action here.

If your city or organization is participating please let us know by filling out this form! We can post contact information for your action so that people in your area can get involved! Already 70+ cities are planning actions. Please connect with a city near you and come out and join the actions on Wednesday!


This is the national website for the F29 Shut Down the Corporations day of action. Portland's information is hosted on the Portland Action Lab website.  http://www.portlandactionlab.org/

In Portland the rally will begin at 11:30 at SW Ankeny and Waterfront Park and the march will leave at 1:00.
