The Enough is Enough rally and "Citizens Intervention" will be a Free Speech Open Mic event on the West Front Lawn of the U.S. Capitol on Saturday October 29, 2011. It is also the official launch an innovative social media campaign with national participation and an ongoing "People's Lobby" component in Washington DC.
It's clear that Washington isn't working for us. It is time for a Citizens Intervention. On Saturday October 29, 2011 our goal is to recruit 1,000 everyday Americans to exercise their First Amendment right to speak out and share their stories about how government dysfunction and hyper-partisanship have impacted their lives. For months we've listened as the politicians have bickered and done nothing. Now it's time for them to listen to us and get to work.
Help us prove that, despite our corrupt political process, civic engagement can still begin with THE PEOPLE. We don't need politicians and their funders. We don't need partisan billionaires and their front groups. We already have the power to pull together across all political and cultural divides and remind the world that the American democracy is not for sale, and that no amount of political spending can shield Congress from the voices of We the People.
Media empires should NOT lead populist movements; the People should
