Threat: "National Day of Action" Feb. 29

I've mentioned that I manage commercial property while on sabbatical from the church. We received this notice from the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) yesterday. 

National Day of Action Rally – The flyer posted on the Preparedness Team Site was provided to us at the end of last week along with a reference to a website providing further information for a planned national day of Call to action to shutdown corporations within the United States on Feb 29th.

"The F29 Shut Down the Corporations National Day of Action is calling on activists across the country to engage in a day of mass non-violent direct action. Direct action is a means of obstructing practices we protest and reclaiming our agency in creating the world we live in. Direct action manifests in many ways such as sit-ins, strikes, blockades, boycotts, banner drops, culture jamming, and performance among many others".

It is our understanding that groups within 30 cities have signaled their willingness to participate and we should all be aware that others will be joining the effort in all likelihood over the next few weeks.

Don't these people have jobs, lives or something to do with themselves besides be nuisances?

I think maybe I'll spend some money and buy a few "items" that day..
Metals, brass, lead, copper, wood, polymer......
Invest, thats the ticket!!
