As legislators return to Minnesota’s state capitol to start the 2012 session they will be greeted by protesters from the Occupy movement and affiliated groups. Their message: “Stop the Attacks on the 99%! Make the Rich Pay for their Crisis! Put a Moratorium on Foreclosures and Evictions! Bail Out People, Not Billionaires!”
The groups say they will unveil their plans to tax the rich and put a halt to home foreclosures and evictions in Minnesota.
Organized by the Minnesota Coalition for People’s Bailout and the Welfare Rights Committee.
