Occupy Long Island visits the Federal Courthouse in CI
Story and video at Long Island Press: here.
Occupy Wall Street activists from Long Island participated in the “Occupy The Courts” January 20th action inspired by Move To Amend. Occupiers gathered outside the big, white, Federal Court in Central Islip. They were protesting Citizens United, the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalizes unlimited corporate spending in political campaigns.
There are several websites and FaceBook pages for Long Island occupations. A place where a lot of groups and people intersect is: https://www.facebook.com/groups/OccupyLongIsland/ At onthewilderside, we cover a lot of NYC and Long Island occupy events.
