Dozens of Occupy protestors gathered in the bitter cold Friday afternoon at the U.S. District Court in downtown Columbus. This time they were protesting corporate campaign contributions.
Protestor Bob Hart said he wants to see corporate money out of elections.
That was the message as about 70 people gathered near the federal courthouse on Marconi Blvd as Columbus joined communities across the country to mark the second anniversary of the US Supreme Court’s decision on Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission.
Three of our city’s organizers for Occupy the Courts spoke with the Columbus Free Press recently. Two of them also spoke with WCRS Columbus.
Doug Todd, Bob Krasen, and Michael Greenman work with Move to Amend, Central Ohio. Krasen said the word about today’s protest is out to a fairly good number of organizations.
