Ongoing violence against Occupy protesters: part 2

Last week Florida Representative Ted Deutch introduced a Constitutional Amendment removing personhood for for-profit corporations and prohibiting corporate funding of candidates. Please encourage your representatives to support this historic measure

Meanwhile, attacks continue against peaceful Occupy protesters as a concerted and systemic effort to crush their constitutionally protected voice. Below is the current list of new attacks against peaceful Occupy Protesters:

The illegal and immoral assaults are growing in ferocity across the country, ramped-up by Right-wing talk radio and other media consistently portraying protesters as criminals, scum, communists and treasonous. They must stop before a fatality occurs. Time for politicians to voice support, if not for the protest then for their assertion of constitutional rights. It is time for churches to stop their silence. It is time for all good citizens to come forward and be heard.
