JOIN NC HEAT’S CAMPAIGN TO CHALLENGE THE EVIL ART POPE EMPIRE AND SAVE OUR COMMUNITIES AND SCHOOLS!
HELP US RAISE AWARENESS IN SOUTHEAST RALEIGH ABOUT ART POPE!
PICKET AT MAXWAY – SATURDAY AT 12 NOON
1905 POOLE RD., RALEIGH, NC 27610
WHY PICKET AT MAXWAY – WHO IS ART POPE?
Art Pope, “the Knight of the Right” is the right-wing millionaire and the architect of the plan to re-segregate Wake County Public Schools. He is not only a villain to those who value public education. He is also a champion of decreased environmental regulation, coal fire plants, shutting down women, gender and ethnic studies increased privatization of the public sector, and is a voice of hate against immigrants.
His empire is broad — to the John Locke Foundation, a conservative and powerful think tank that pushes free market right-wing policies, to the John Pope Foundation, to Civitas, to being a co-director of the national Americans for Prosperity – one of the primary funders and engines of the Tea Party. Last election he poured over $2.2 million dollars into Republican campaigns, which led to their take over of both the NC Senate and the NC House of Representatives. Those he helped to elect are now pushing his poisonous agenda.
Our aim is to hit Pope where he can feel it – in his wallet. Therefore we are targeting the source of his family’s wealth – Variety Wholesalers, Inc. Variety Wholesales, Inc. owns many low-cost “dollar-type” stores across the southeast including Roses, Maxway, Super 10, Bargain Town, Bill’s Dollar Store, Value Mart, Treasure Mart, and Super Dollar.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU SATURDAY!
