SAY NO TO KOCHS!
Billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch headquartered in Wichita Kansas are putting their industrial wealth behind aggressive reaction in most of our states. They are principal funders and organizers of Americans for Progress and the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), which sponsors of the laws, candidates, and policies suppressing voters, unions, environmental regulation, local government, unemployment insurance and other anti-recessionary legislation.
Current political turmoil in Ohio, Wisconsin, and Michigan, where appointed arbitrary officials are displacing elected governments, illustrate their impact. Until recently most of their activities have been clothed in secrecy outside the reach of campaign financial disclosure, but investigations by the Center for American Progress, Politico, Common Cause, and Public Citizen have been exposing machinations so odious that some major corporations, Amazon being among the latest, have withdrawn support from ALEC. But momentum behind their radical right program continues to ride on unbroken. Join OccupyOxnard and Ventura County’s 99% in saying “NO” to the Koch brothers and their nefarious operations.
The Koch brothers control huge industrial operations. In Texas, the Midwest and Alaska they produce many industrial chemicals and fuels. They operate several oil refineries and extensive pipelines, especially in the Midwest. But they also produce a number of common household branded products easily identified by people upset with their anti-democratic political agenda. Common consumer Koch brands include:
GEORGIA PACIFIC Products:
Quilted Northern Toilet Paper,
Angel Soft Toilet Paper,
Soft ‘n Gentle Toilet Paper,
Mardi Gras towels,
Vanity Fair napkins,
Dixie labelled cups, bowls and other table top products.
INVISTA Textiles and Fabrics:
