Another 'Awake the State' rally planned for May 10

in Uncategorized by

You?e not alone. Since Awake The State? first major protest almost two months ago, Floridians have taken to the streets in a historic level of civic activism. Gov. Scott and his allies in the Legislature are hoping that despite their presiding over the most anti-middle class legislative session in Florida history, you?l somehow just go away. It? time to prove them wrong.

Join us as we Awake Again on May 10 to protest Gov. Scott? anti-middle class agenda and the legislators that support it. Let them know we?e not going anywhere.

Average Floridians are fed up with Tallahassee politicians balancing the budget on the backs of hard-working Floridians. Middle class families simply cannot afford the mentality of cuts for schools, hospitals and law enforcement in order for politicians to carry water for the big business lobby, namely the Florida Chamber of Commerce.

And remember all the hot air we heard about creating jobs? At the end of the day, all Gov. Scott and his allies in the Legislature did this year is make it tougher for our state to recruit quality teachers, first responders and other vital service workers. And on May 10, they?e gonna hear about it from Floridians.

Find an Awake Again May 10 rally close to you, or organize one in your community.

Never has Florida? middle class been more under siege than we were during the 2011 legislative session. Politicians waged a war against Florida voters but they are learning we?l fight back to protect our communities, our families, our schools and our rights as voters.

Let? continue to Awake The State.
