Wednesday, November 30: Make the 1 Percent Pay their Fair Share.

It’s time for the richest 1 percent to pay their fair share to help fix our economy. Big banks and large corporations benefit from outdated tax loopholes while our communities continue to suffer.

We need a tax system that is fair to all of us so that we can rebuild an economy that works for the 99 percent.

Thursday, December 1: Do You Stand with the 99 Percent?

Legislators are elected by the people to represent the people. Government’s job is to protect Washington families—not big corporations, unfair tax breaks or rich special interests.

We call on our elected legislators to stand up for Washington families, stand up to special interests and stand with the 99 percent.

Friday, December 2: Our Future is at Stake.

What do you want to be when you grow up? Our children are looking at a world where they are uncertain of their next meal and unable to see a doctor when they need one. Our students will be shoved into crowded classrooms, graduate saddled by debt and end up unable to find a job.

We call on the people of Washington to look to the future and decide what kind of legacy we will leave for our children.

  1. Hi–
    If this is a website for all of Occupy the Capitol, how do others of us involved in the organizing post information and resources? I’m with Radical Women and Sisters Organize for Survival. We’ve done a leaflet we’d like to share and will have workparties to let people know about.

  2. Helen, I’ll put up a public calendar that folks will be able to add events to. Stay tuned.
