Occupy-Linked Protesters Toss $5,000 in Bills Off Seattle Building
#MicCheckWallSt, an affiliate of Occupy Seattle, held its “4th of July Money Drop” to “[declare] independence from Citizens United,” the landmark Supreme Court ruling lifting restrictions on corporate and union campaign spending.
Video posted online shows stacks of bills emblazoned with the words “Money as speech silences us all” and “End Citizens United” being unloaded from a duffel bag and set up beside a window. A voice says “Go” and two people begin hurling the money out the window, the bills fluttering toward the ground. According to the Guardian, the bills thrown were mostly ones and fives.
