Protest Koch-backed Americans for Prosperity forum in Santa Fe
August 10 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pmFree
After a 4 year hiatus, the Koch Brothers are back in New Mexico and have their sights set on the 2018 elections and on influencing our politics with dark money. Americans for Prosperity (a Koch-backed group) are planning a forum to help teach their followers how to reach out to local legislators. We plan to stage a funeral march to symbolize the “Death of Democracy” (Sold to Charles and David Koch) to demonstrate that a healthy democracy should not be sold to the highest bidder. If you would like to participate in the funeral march, please wear all-black. We also welcome anyone who simply wants to cheer us on and show Americans for Prosperity that their message of lowering taxes for the ultra rich, eliminating healthcare for the poor and middle class, and privatizing public education is not welcome in Santa Fe.
