Northern Arizona Move To Amend
is throwing a party, and YOU are invited!
Here are the details:
What? ∞ Street theater. (Actors provided). Marching on sidewalks and through intersections, carrying signs and chanting and singing as a group. (Signs provided; police notified of our plans.)
When? Saturday, October 18th ∞ Orientation at 12:45 p.m. Skits and marches until 2:00 p.m.
Where? Courthouse Plaza. Gurley Street (north) side of plaza, midway up sidewalk leading to courthouse steps, where there are flags and a statue.
Why? § To raise public awareness of dark, anonymous money in campaigns. Super-PACs and the super-wealthy are purchasing our government. § To educate the public that U.S. Constitutional Amendment(s) are necessary to establish fundamentally that:
1. Money spent on elections is not the free speech protected by the First Amendment.
2. Corporations (both for-profit and non-profit) and labor unions are not entitled to certain constitutional rights to include freedom of speech.

EVEN MORE INFORMATION: You will receive ready-made signs to carry (please do not bring your own signs). We will practice a few catchy chants to get us in the mood. As part of the demonstration, we plan to stage a repeating skit complete with costumes and a team of actors/hecklers!
