Big Apple Coffee Party USTREAM Channel
The Big Apple Coffee Party is committed to diversity, civil discourse, acting independently of political parties, of corporations, and of political lobbying networks.
We demand a government that responds to the needs of the majority of its citizens as expressed by our votes and by our voices—not corporate interests as expressed by misleading advertisements and campaign contributions.
We want a society in which democracy is treated as sacrosanct and ordinary citizens participate out of a sense of civic duty, civic pride, and a desire to contribute to society.
The Big Apple Coffee Party consists of grassroots activists who live in New York City who meet regularly to advance our common goals.
Big Apple Coffee Party presents:
CITIZENS UNITE AGAINST CITIZENS UNITED
A "We the People / Free Speech Day"
Saturday, January 22, 2011 12pm - 4pm The Tank, NYC
Co-sponsored by Democracy for NYC and Chelsea Neighbors United to End the War
On January 22, step up to the mic and exercise your free speech for 3 minutes using words, movement, music, or poetry to express your feelings about money in politics or corporate personhood. Or just experience the free speech of others!

Presented in association with Coffee Party USA, Backbone Campaign, Alliance for Democracy, Move to Amend, People for the American Way, PR Watch, Public Citizen, Changing the Game, Fix Congress First, Movement for the People, and other partners for Movement for the People
