Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Get to know those ALEC  (American Legislative Exchange Council) supporters in your State. They are promoted and hand picked by ALEC to make sure ALEC gets their policy into place. Then there is a group called the National Policy Council that is also worth the watching and 59 or more others...Money buys policy in politics... You just can't let your guard down on that...Check out Roger Wicker's latest newsletter where he praises Mississippi for making ALEC's top ten list. http://www.wicker.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/weekly-report?ID=85ef8d91-7f5c-4c49-a944-5781cbc93f54

Occupy Rallies Against Powerful Right-Wing Group You've Never Heard Of

Occupy Rallies Against Powerful Right-Wing Group You've Never Heard Of | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
The movement's protesters want you to understand what ALEC is and why you should fear it.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This is from a year ago but I just ran across it and thought it still had value. I see that some of the planned activites from Occupy last year took hold over the year and are continuing to gain strength and spread citizen awarenesss.

 

Excerpt from article:

In the works since January, today's protests are just as much about the broader issue of corporate control of politics. "We are rejecting a society that does not allow us to control our future," says a call to action on Shut Down the Corporations, the umbrella website for the protests. Here is a rundown of some of the planned actions:

 

Southern California: Actions targeting one of the largest Walmart distribution centers in support of nonunion warehouse workers

New York City: A teach-in by Rolling Stone writer Matt Taibbi (coiner of the "vampire squid" meme) and

actions targeting Bank of America, Pfizer, and the Koch brothersSalt Lake City:

A mock debutante ball in the state capitol that will draw attention to a Utah replica of Arizona's anti-immigrant lawPortland, Oregon:

Actions targeting ALEC corporations throughout the cityPhoenix:

A rally at the state capitol focusing on union-busting and anti-immigrant bills followed by a "museum-style" tour of ALEC corporations
