Activists held a Valentine's Day protest outside the luxury apartment building, where Bill Rudin lives, at : 211 East 70th Street.
Activists were protesting the Rudin family, because they have become to symbolise the way corporations and the 1% buy off political enablers and craft legal loopholes that serve the interests of corporations and the 1%. The Rudin family have used campaign donations, lobbying, and legal loopholes to convert St. Vincent's Hospital into a zone-busting billion-dollar luxury condo and townhouse complex. Other corporations and other members of the 1% have created the anti-labor legislation in Wisconsin and the racist bill SB 1070 in Arizona, among so many others. Either they work independently, or they use the American Legislative Exchange Council (''ALEC'') to spread these corporate laws around the country.
To find out what you can do to protest against corporations, the 1%, and others, who pervert our democratic government in the name of corporate greed, please check out the February 29, 2012, ALEC call to action.
