On April 7th, Occupy JRC began calling for a June 2nd 'National Day of Action' against the Judge Rotenberg Center. On April 11th, the Canton Patch (the local town newspaper for Canton, MA where the Judge Rotenberg 'school' is based) helped that call be heard by posting it on their website. On that same day, it began to be answered in California by the Brandenburgs now seeking to organize a local sister protest on the West Coast. Visit their blog for more information and stay tuned for additional actions scheduled in your area.
Energy and momentum are growing. Solidarity can move mountains. Help us shut JRC down, and win a human rights victory. To notify us of a planned action for June 2nd, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
