As government goes off the rails, we have numerous reasons to protest. Represent South Dakota invites those who’d like their state back to gather at the Capitol in Pierre on Wednesday, February 1, to rally against corruption in state government:
Despite massive public backlash, politicians in the South Dakota Senate are still attempting to use “emergency powers” to repeal IM-22, a statewide Anti-Corruption Act passed by voters less than three months ago.
With the Senate’s repeal vote scheduled for Wednesday, we need hundreds of South Dakotans to rally at the Capitol and pack the Senate to demand that our elected officials #RespectOurVote [Represent South Dakota, “RSVP: Rally Against Corruption,” retrieved 2017.01.29].
The focus of the Represent SD rally (Wednesday 1:30–3:30 p.m. CST) is House Bill 1069, which was delayed pending amendment last week. But while you’re in the Capitol, feel free to give your legislators a piece of your mind about initiative and referendum, refugees, guns, sneaky creationism, and the need for stronger rules to protect interns from legislative leaders who cover up unethical behavior.
Pierre is a target-rich environment for protesting bad government. Speak up, Wednesday and every day!
