State of the Public Power! Dennis Kucinich and friends!
February 4 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PST
Former US Representative Dennis Kucinich will be pumping up the crowds with his characteristic passion launching our Thurston Public Power Initiative. Kucinich got his start in politics fighting and winning a battle to keep public the Cleveland municipal electric company which was on the verge of being privatized during the early onslaught of neoliberal vulture capitalism. He has been a passionate expert on protecting public utilities and fighting a system that works to benefit the few rather than the many. Kucinich is known for his passionate belief in nonviolence, running his 2004 campaign for President to end the war in Iraq. His leadership is needed more today than ever! Join Kucinich and friends as we demand Power to the Public and the submission of this foreign owned monopoly Puget Sound Energy to the people’s will! Come join in this battle for control of our electric utility. It’s time to defeat PSE’s band of corporate lawyers and foreign financiers that drain away our shared wealth.We’re fighting them in an election rigged by unlimited corporate money. PSE will spend millions of dollars of the rate payers money in bribing politicians, bribing news media and creating fake citizen groups to sow endless propaganda to scare the people into not voting for their own interests. We need a huge movement of the public to courageously fight them! This is a great alternative to Trump’s State of the Union Speech! Come and be inspired!https://www.facebook.com/events/593455908160934/
