Had enough of all these politicians talking about all these cuts? Yeah, us
Time to bring the street-heat to the Town Hall and show all the politicians
that we've had just about enough of the false alternative between cutting
more or cutting less.
Click here to find a list of local Town Halls coming up soon (call the phone
# if no event is listed yet).
Cutting Social Security? Cutting Medicare? Cutting Teachers? Cutting
Firefighters? Cutting US? That's how you're going to fix our problems and
get our country back on track? That don't make no sense, Jack.
How about JOBS? If these political jackasses (yeah, I said it) had been
talking about jobs for the last 3 months instead of messing around with some
debt-ceiling circus, maybe we'd putting Americans back to work instead of
seeing more and more of our neighbors get fired.
Click here for some great "NO CUTS" and "UNCUT US" US Uncut signs with our logo
If we could make all these crooked corporations pay their fair share, just like the rest
of us, then we could fund a jobs program. We ain't gonna cut our way out of
this problem (trickle-down economics is busted), and we ain't
gonna let these political hacks cut what's left of the social safety net and
hack away at our communities anymore.
Time to get political in order to turn our attention and anger at those
making all these messed up decisions - the politicians. So, show up at a
local Town Hall and give 'em Hell ya'll (or "just tell them the truth" - either way, it's cool)."
Click here for a Town Hall action kit that an Uncutter made up and posted on
the new forums.
Brothers and Sisters, it's time to rise up and raise your voice to tell
those politicians that we're over their BS. If the spirit so moves you,
stand up to cause a ruckus, cause a bit of a disruption, and shout at the
top of your lungs so these Representatives and Senators can hear you:
"JOBS not CUTS" (maybe get the whole room chanting along with you).
Remember, when they say "cut back", we say "FIGHT BACK!" Time to Fight Back
at the Town Halls. See you there Uncutters!
The US Uncut Team
P.S. Need ideas? The US Uncut Town Hall action
kit(developed by one
of our own) has some great ideas in it, and feel free to
get creative when you get your direct action on - wittiness is always a
winner in our book. Also, post ideas in the
forum on how to sneak
signs into the Town
Bring the #ruckus!
The revolution will be tweeted, liked, & shared. We the People Win. #epic

Right now, more than ever before, America is aching for a direct action group to take to the streets and protest the cuts, like they're doing in Greece and Spain.
After watching the circus in Washington unfold, and watching our leaders cut all of our public services to pieces to protect corporate tax loopholes, we're all mad as hell, and ready to do something about it. But we need your voices to move forward.
Want to help pick our next day of action? Actively plan actions against our targets? Decide on content to put on our website? Or maybe you just designed some really awesome graphics and want them on a poster. And hey, maybe you just have some questions to throw our way. Good news- you can do all of that on forums.usuncut.org!
All our message boards need is your participation. Will you take a minute and register and introduce yourself?
We want to open up lines of communication between all US Uncut groups, connect organizers and activists with each other, and equip everyone with all the resources they need to have successful, effective, fun actions. What better way to do that than a forum where all of us can collaborate in real-time?
Our forums are completely free and very user-friendly. We want you to join in the conversation with us as we make plans to shake things up again.
Sign up for an account on our forums, and help plan our next move!
This movement is about all of us, not just a few of us. This movement can grow into the mighty populist force its destined to be, but only if we have your input as we move forward and plan future campaigns.
Join our forums! And we'll see you in the streets.
