PROTEST CITIZENS UNITED- WE WERE THERE!

On the Fifth Anniversary of The 2010 Citizens United ruling by the Supreme Court OCCUPY BELLINGHAM staged an action. 

For starters we built the banners.  We learned this at a Backbone Campaign summer workshop here in Bellingham summer of 2012.

Then we took those banners to the freeway overpasses and staged them in a nice order to get the message across.

Then we took our new “bat signal” light to the Granary in downtown Bellingham for more action.

ALL IN ALL WE HAD A GREAT TIME.  WE WERE JOINED BY A COUPLE FROM ANACORTES WHO HEARD ABOUT OUR ACTION VIA THE INTERNET.  WOW!
