Date / Time:
On Feb 29, Occupy Las Vegas is calling for a march down Sahara Avenue to the offices of NV Energy, in protest of their environmental record and their involvement with a powerful corporate lobbying group: the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). Over 80 Occupy Cities around the world are joining to oppose this controversial organization, which writes anti-environmentalist bills for your representatives to rubber-stamp. NV Energy is an ALEC member.
They are poisoning the air and the water.
They are killing the Paiute people.

SHUT OFF YOUR POWER ON FEB 29.
MARCH AGAINST NV ENERGY & ALEC FEB 29.
WE'LL SEE YOU IN THE STREETS!
There has been a theft by the 1% of our democratic ability to shape and form the society in which we live and our society is steered toward the destructive pursuit of consumption, profit and greed at the expense of all else.
We call on everyone in the city of Las Vegas - activists and non-activists alike - to take action against corporations like NVEnergy that are part of ALEC - the American Legislative Exchange Council - a corporate thinktank that writes "model bills" for YOUR representatives to sign into law. We urge you to join us in demonstrations, marches, boycotts, strikes, walkouts, and any other form of non-violent action against more than 400 ALEC corporate members ALL DAY on FEB 29.
