11:30 AM - 12:30 PM Tuesday, January 21, 2020 on the tenth anniversary of Citizens United, one of the most devastating blows to our Democracy. "Funeral for Democracy - If we'd only done something sooner!" will take place in front of the New Hampshire State House on City Plaza, by the Main Street side of the arch. Please help us with some street theatre to make a point about the state of our Democracy.
We need mourners, dressed in black, to carry Democracy's coffin (Yes, we have one) down the sidewalks in downtown Concord, then have a funeral at noon in front of the State House. We'll have eulogies from James Madison, Betsy Ross, Gerry Mander, Sue Pression, who will wonder if we could have saved Democracy if we'd only taken to the streets to take action before the people's power was taken from us by special interests.
There is likely to be press at this event, so you may want to review this 10th anniversary of Citizens United report from our research friends at the Center for Responsive Politics, creators of the Open Secrets web site. The damage done is astounding.
We need lots of pictures taken and shared of this one. Don't miss it!
