Money Shouldn't Talk Silent Flash March (Capitol Hill) SEATTLE
This is a silent flash march along Broadway, in and around Capitol Hill. During while we will be encouraging people to silently enter actual stores and well as meeting up at designated times in front of Bank of America, Chase, and U.S. Bank on the sidewalk to hold short silent vigils.
We'll be meeting up at Cal Anderson Park by the water fountain at 10:30am before heading out to walk around Broadway.
Even if you can't make it, please share the heck out of this *and* add your friends to the invite!!
What's this about?
"Right now, with every dollar we spend, we give corporations more and more influence over our politics. Over our healthcare, our government, our society, and our future. With every dollar we give them more and more influence over our daily lives.
We think this is wrong. Money isn't speech. And it definitely shouldn't be a corporate megaphone with which to corrupt our system of government, bride our politicians, and buy special treatment.
Buying their goods shouldn't mean selling our voices. Buying their goods shouldn't mean selling ourselves. We feel it's time people started drawing direct attention to the silencing power of money as speech. As consumers, as voters, as citizens, as a society, as people, and as human beings, we can all agree, money shouldn't talk.
Together let us reclaim our voices with silence."
We will have small printed versions of the above statement contained in this invite for you to hand out if someone wishes to engage you in positive dialog about this action or wants a more information about the action and you do not wish to break your silence. We will also have small cheat-sheets available with a map and the times for the silent vigils in front of the banks.
In keeping with the message of the dollars tapped over our mouths, "silent" means remaining quiet. No chanting, singing, or drums, etc. As well talking amongst ourselves should be kept to a minimum. We make our point by engaging in eye contact with as many of the people that pass by as possible and holding it just a little bit too long.
We want to draw as much visual attention to the dollars and the messages you've written on them as possible. Corporate logos, wording, occupy gear, etc. will detract from this. So if you can, please try to wear plain clothing without any words, symbols, logos, or stickers. For that reason also, please do not bring signs to hold or flags to wave.
In between the silent vigils in front of the banks you are encouraged to make your way around Capitol Hill, up and down Broadway by yourself, with a couple friends, or in a larger group.
• 10:30am - Meet in Cal Anderson Park by the water fountain and get ready.
- There will be a brief orientation
- Printed versions of the statement will be available if you wish to hand them out
- Please bring a dollar bill with you if you can (we'll have some extra)
- We'll have some tape & spirit gum on hand.
- If you can bring some tape with you to share, even better.
- We'll have markers on hand if you wish to write a message on your dollar.
• 11:00am - Walk around Broadway and or enter shops.
• 11:30am to 12:00pm - Silent vigil in front of Bank of America (614 Broadway East)

Show the Love, Save Our Schools! WISCONSIN
One year ago, Governor Scott Walker and the Wisconsin GOP dropped "the bomb" on public workers, including teachers and educational support staff by stripping us of 50 years of collective bargaining rights. First, they created a deficit by giving tax breaks to wealthy corporate interests and then refused federal stimulus money to help create jobs. They used this ginned up fiscal crisis as the pretext for their union busting agenda and tried to ram it through the legislature in a few short days.
You fought back with the help of 14 'spunky' senators who had the courage to stand up to the brazen attack on worker's rights and the Wisconsin Idea. The turmoil and uprising continues a year later as we've successfully gathered nearly two million signatures to recall Scott Walker, Rebecca Kleesfisch and four more GOP Senators. While his constituents are out in the cold, rain, and snow collecting signatures to recall him, Walker is out of state in Texas, Florida and New York collecting millions and millions of dollars from his 'fat cat' supporters who are engaged in a national effort to crush Unions. Meanwhile, Wisconsin continues to lose jobs as the rest of country appears to be recovering. No Scott Walker, your reforms are NOT working.
In addition to this attack on worker's rights, Walker and his cronies have slashed education funding, funding for health care for our most vulnerable citizens, clamped down on free speech rights, made it more difficult to vote and have generally created one of the most divisive political environments in the country. And, let's not forget the ongoing John Doe investigation that has already ensnared several of his close advisors and campaign staff.
Please join in Solidarity to commemorate the one year anniversary of this historic uprising. We will gather at the corner of Wisconsin Avenue and Mifflin St. at 4:15 PM, then march in protest, hear some short speeches of inspiration, and end with a Solidarity Sing Along! Bring picket signs and wear MTI Red!
Scott Walker and the GOP can take away our rights but not our voices! Let's remind them that our resolve is certain and that our Union makes us strong!
