Occupy Wall Street Versus the Supreme Court

The court must be held accountable:

The "Occupy" movement will turn its focus to the nation's highest court Friday as organizers plan to gather around the Supreme Court building dressed like justices and singing songs of the old soul group, The Supremes.

The event is being held around the two-year anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in the case of Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, which removed many limits to corporate spending in federal political campaigns, organizers say.

Protests are also expected at federal courthouses in other cities.

The one-day event dubbed "Occupy the Courts" is organized by the grassroots group called Move to Amend and was inspired by the Occupy Wall Street participants, organizers said.

The Occupy Wall Street movement that began in New York in September has spread across major cities worldwide as a call to action against what protesters consider the unequal distribution of wealth.
