The Aetna 17 heroes needs our support.

What: “Aetna 17” court date and “Obama, Letting You Know” action
When: Thursday, February 25, 8:45am
Where: Criminal Court of New York City, 100 Centre St.
On the same day President Obama convenes a “make-or-break” bipartisan summit on healthcare reform, the 17 protesters who sat-in at Aetna are returning to court to continue their legal battle.
They need your support, so please show up and bring a lot of people with you! Photographers from the wire services (Getty and others) will be there, and the story has gotten into the New York Times and USA Today before, so let’s make it big and give the reporters an alternative angle to report on the Obama summit story!
This action is being organized by the Aetna 17. For more information please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
