The Rockford Tea Party invites folks to a counterdemonstration near Congressman Don Manzullo’s Rockford office tomorrow about noon.
The stimulus is the local contingent of Occupy Wall Street, as you can see in the email below:
Tomorrow Thursday Dec 1st, the real people behind the Occupy Movement will be demonstrating outside Don Manzullo’s Office. Move-On.ORG and Occupy will be protesting and getting their message out. When we show up we get our message out also which is a vastly different and much more realistic and honest message than that of the Occupy Mobs. Please plan to attend our Counter Protest Tomorrow at 12:15 outside Manzullo’s Office.

Online Staff Report Rock River Times
At 12:15 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 1, local members of MoveOn.org will hold a speak-out outside of U.S. Rep. Don Manzullo’s office to demand he stop protecting tax breaks for the millionaires on Wall Street and start standing up for the 99 percent.
The speak-out is part of a national day of action taking place at congressional offices across the country to demand that Congress focus on creating jobs and making the tax system work for all Americans, not just the super-rich.
Manzullo’s office is at 415 S. Mulford Road, Rockford.
The day of action comes as Congress is gearing up to vote on a payroll tax cut that would extend tax cuts for middle-class families and pay for them by imposing a tax on income over $1 million.
MoveOn members will be telling their stories at this event and presenting written letters to Manzullo
The speak-out is being organized by the new American Dream Movement. The American Dream Movement is a growing movement inspired by protests in Wisconsin.
