Rally Sunday at Koch secret meeting

This weekend, David and Charles Koch and their billionaire pals are holding their annual secret meeting to figure out how to impoverish more working people. If you live in Southern California, try to get to the rally in Rancho Mirage to protest their loathsome confab. The billionaires' confab itself is at the Rancho Las Palmas Resort, but the rally will be from 1:30-3:30 pm at The River parking lot (at the intersection of Rancho Las Palmas Dr. and Bob Hope Dr., opposite 41000 Bob Hope Drive).

If you can't make it to the rally, you can watch a panel discussion beforehand. Sign up to watch it livestreamed here.

ThinkProgress has an update on the agenda of the secret meeting, which is getting less secret by the minute. The billionaires plan to focus on undoing new laws to prevent another global financal meltdown like the one that caused the recession in 2008. They also hope to raise more money this year for their candidates, their anti-union think tanks and their phony grass-roots groups. Reports ThinkProgress:
At last year’s Koch fundraiser, Charles Koch promised to match every dollar committed by attendees. He raised $30 million dollars at the Aspen meeting in 2010, and hopes to do better this year, again matching every dollar raised with one of his own.
Make them stop. Go to the rally if you can. For information, click here.
