Philadelphians bring their neighborhoods to the 1% at Romney Fundraiser
Philadelphia – Philadelphia’s workers and supporters of the 99% will gather outside the Union League on Friday morning to rally against the economic agenda of presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Senator Pat Toomey and Governor Tom Corbett. While attendees spend as much as $25,000 inside the private event to see the trio, Philadelphians from across the city and representing a wide array of community groups will rally and stage a street theater performance outside for all to see. They will invite Romney, Toomey and Corbett to venture beyond the Union League and interact with Philadelphians who can’t afford five-figure meals. These citizens know that they cannot afford to see continuous cuts to vital programs and services that keep the middle class strong. They understand that education and healthcare are at risk and could very well be on the chopping block if a Romney agenda is enacted.
The 99% will not stand by as the 1% profits from tax loopholes for big corporations. They will not stand by as Medicare as we know it is replaced with an expensive voucher system. To show their feelings, protesters will stage a street theater action at 9am, bringing their neighborhoods to the center city haunt of the 1%. From Fishtown to Kensington to West Philly to South, people will bring symbols of our communities to tell the GOP what Philly really wants: world class education, healthcare for everyone, and an economy that works for all. They can take our resources, but they can’t take our pride!
