    Newt Gingrich Mic Checked by Occupy Boston and Occupy Harvard

    Tonight members of Occupy Boston and Occupy Harvard mic checked Newt Gingrich—former Speaker of the House (R-GA) and current candidate for the Republican presidential nomination—as he introduced his documentary A City upon a Hill: The Spirit of American Exceptionalism at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. The documentary was produced by Citizens United Productions, the lead plaintiff in the 2009 Supreme Court case Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission which ruled that corporations and unions have a right to spend unlimited amounts of money on political advertisements.

    Here’s the video of our mic check:

    Across the country, our infrastructure is falling apart. Our bridges, our roads, and our public transit systems are in a state of disrepair. Enough! It’s time to revitalize our economy with the creation of local jobs that serve our country as a whole! At 4 pm, tens of thousands of people who are deeply engaged in the labor movement will join us in Dewey Square, march to our bridges, and demand that we get back to work.

    The candlelight march will proceed from Dewey Square down Atlantic Avenue to the North Washington St. Bridge—a bridge that is desperately in need of repair—for a speak out against unemployment, austerity, and infrastructure cuts.
