    6pm

    Money Out of Politics Rally

    To commemorate the 2nd Anniversary of Occupy Wall Street and the Movement's call to create a Presidential Commission to separate money from politics, a Money Out Of Politics coalition that consists of millions of Americans including Occupy Wall Street, Democrats, Republicans and Tea Party will rally to support the separation of money from politics and enacting public campaign financing laws so that each American's voice will have equal weight and corporations will no longer have undue influence over the legislative process and public policy.  This, in turn, will help lead to fair elections, fair trade and fair taxation.

    Fair elections includes representatives that carry out the will of more than 90% of the population that demands gun safety laws that will save many of the ten thousand Americans killed by gun violence each year.  Fair trade includes stopping a fast track of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreements (TAFTA) in order to protect good paying American jobs, the environment, financial regulations, and civil liberties. Fair taxation includes corporations and the wealthy paying the same effective tax rate as the middle class and enacting a 0.5% financial transaction tax (the robin hood tax) raising  more than 500 Billion Dollars a year that would provides free preschool through college education for all American, rebuilt the infrastructure with a green grid that would create millions of good paying jobs and save many lives from pollution related diseases as well as reducing the deficit. -  Commission To Investigate Government Corruption - 1 Place Plaza, Pace University
