Media update: Dozens of People Arrested to Protest Billionaire Koch Brothers Secret Meeting

RANCHO MIRAGE, CA -- Today, over two thousand everyday Americans from across the country – including San Diego, Los Angeles and Organce County - converged at the Rancho Las Palmas Resort in Rancho Mirage, CA to protest a secret right-wing strategy meeting held by billionaires David and Charles Koch.

Attendees, deputized as members of the "People's Center for Disease Control", occupied the intersection of Bob Hope Drive and Rancho Las Palmas as part of the demonstration to voice opposition to the Koch's funding of climate denial groups, far-right political candidates, and anti-health care reform efforts. The entrance to the Rancho Las Palmas Resort was blocked off by several dozen members of a quarantine squad dressed in hazmat suits, holding banners and a 140 foot police tape marked "Quarantine the Kochs". Twenty-seven arrests were made as part of the peaceful demonstration.
Groups organizing today’s protest included: The Other 98%, Ruckus Society, Courage Campaign, Common Cause and the California Nurses Association. The Other 98% is a voice for the vast majority of Americans who are tired of corporate control of Washington and the Tea Party extremism that—wittingly or unwittingly—works to protect it.

RANCHO MIRAGE, CA -- Hoy, meas de dos miles de personas de todo los Estados Unidos de Norte America – y residentes de San Diego, Los Angeles y Orange Conty - vinieron al Rancho Las Palmas Resort en Rancho Mirage, CA, para llamar atención a una reunión secreta de planeación estratégica del extremo-derecho, llamado por los hermanos billonarios David y Charles Koch (pronunciado “Coke” en inglés). Las y los participantes, deputizados como miembros del “Centro Popular para el Control de Enfermedades,” llenaron la intersección de Bob Hope Drive y Rancho Las Palmas Drive en frente del hotel exclusivo, en contra del papel de los Kochs en dar dinero de grandes cantidades que niegan al cambio climático, de políticos de extremo-derecho, y en contra de los esfuerzos para la reforma de salud. Luego, decenas de personas vestidos como un equipo de cuarantena cerraron la entrada al complejo hotelero, con banderas de 140 pies pintados como señales de advertencia “Materiales Peligrosos” y cinta amarilla señalando, “Cuarentena de los Kochs.” 27 personas fueron arrestados como parte de las manifestaciones pacificas.

Las organizaciones en carga de la manifestación incluyen: The Other 98%, Ruckus Society, Courage Campaign, Common Cause and the California Nurses Association. The Other 98% is a voice for the vast majority of Americans who are tired of corporate control of Washington and the Tea Party extremism that—wittingly or unwittingly—works to protect it.
