Oh Great – Big Labor to Sponsor ‘99% Spring’ Movement


I’m sure the media will pass this off as another grass roots movement.

You may remember reading about The 99% Spring, a protest movement supported by political groups and organized labor that aspires to be the next Occupy movement.

Its 40 co-sponsors include big names the United Auto Workers, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Moveon.org, and UNITE, the hospitality industry union.

When The 99% Spring was announced in February, organizers vowed to train 100,000 people. It looks like they’ll easily make that goal when their training programs kick off next week.

There are already 918 planned around the country. All the group needs is about 10 people at each session to meet its goal, and many of the programs have dozens of participants signed up. … The movement has a Twitter account, @the99spring.

Over the weekend, the UAW sent emails to its members, encouraging them to take part in a training session.

Read the whole thing. Weasel Zippers says “Get ready for more killing, raping, stealing, flag burning, vandalism etc.” All brought to you by Big Labor, President Obama’s largest special interest group. Oh, and don’t forget, they also may come knocking on your door.
