Why Protest the State of the State?
Why are we protesting the State of the State? Why are we rallying for the 99%?
Because Gov. Kasich isn’t standing up for us and someone needs to be fighting for our future and our communities.
We are at a make or break moment in Ohio. While our citizens continue to struggle, John Kasich is giving away the state to his biggest campaign contributors.
Education. Environment. Voting Rights. Workers’ Rights. Attack after attack – Kasich and his allies are working for their corporate special interests, continuing to ignore the will of the people.
After the beating Kasich took on Issue 2, he knows the people are against him. So instead of having the State of the State at the Statehouse in Columbus, Kasich is breaking 200 years of tradition and running away to a small venue in hopes that no one will make the effort to travel there.
On February 7th, we will prove him wrong. Citizens from across Ohio are going to come together and protest Kasich’s fire-sale of Ohio to his corporate friends. We will show him that the 99% won’t sit back while he rewards his 1% campaign contributors.
John Kasich has the wrong vision for Ohio. It’s time for Kasich and the rest of the politicians to do the right thing. The days of rewarding campaign contributors with Ohio’s tax dollars are over.
The corporate takeover of Ohio stops here.
