REGULAR MEETINGS of MTA FAR-WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA—Sylva
Move to Amend’s affiliate in Far Western North Carolina-Sylva is coalition partnership of Occupy WNC and The Canary Coalition. Guests and new members always welcome! Each second and fourth Tuesday the Western NC MTA affiliate meets at the OccupyWNC General Assembly.
Our intent is to be a grassroots movement that is multi-racial, multi-generational, cross-gender orientation and identity, cross-party, cross-class and multi-cultural.
Our goal is a 28th Amendment to the US Constitution—nothing less than an end to the US Constitution rights of corporate “Personhood” and to elections where money is NOT “Speech.” Only then, will democracy have a chance to be legalized in the United States
Next meetings: Tuesday, August 12, 2014 – 7:00pm to 8:30pm ~ (August 26th, Sept. 9th) Jackson County’s Justice Center
401 Grindstaff Road Room 246
