Several Occupy Winston-Salem members will be protesting NC House Speaker Thom Tillis this afternoon, WED Mar. 7 for his connections with A.L.E.C. (American Legislative Exchange Council) and his championing recent regressive, pro-big business, anti-worker legislation.

Lewisville Elementary

Lewisville, NC  27023 Rally starts between 4:30 PM and 5:00 PM. Town Hall starts at 6:00 PM


This is not an official Occupy Winston-Salem event and we have not, as a coaltion, chosen to endorse any specific party or candidate- however this will be an EXCELLENT opportunity to continue to expose the depth of corporate dominance over our political process.
