MoveOn PAC is sponsoring a 24-hour Citizen Filibuster to raise awareness of and protest the Senate initiative to limit the capacity of the filibuster in American law making. The event will take place in a Loop location that has yet to be determined (watch for a Merge follow-up later this evening once the MoveOn-sters have recieved their permit) beginning at noon Tuesday and wrapping up by noon Wednesday. Members of the community are wanted to read (essays, poetry, etc.) and speak at the event to keep the momentum running throughout event--sign up here. Or just show up and offer your support for the democratic process.
