Occupy Spokane marches into Riverpark Square and sings Christmas carols occupy style.
After already cutting $10 billion away from vital programs and services in our community we are rallying to say "Enough is enough!" We will not stand for further cost-creating cuts to health care, education and social services in Spokane. It is time to raise revenue to buy back these devastating cuts and get our state economy back on track!
Occupy Spokane, Washington CAN!, the Peace and Justice Action League, UFCW 21, the WSNA and partners for a march in downtown Spokane to hear from Spokanites who traveled to the Capitol in protest of further budget cuts, and to hear from front-line everyday working heroes who are also impacted by state cuts.Occupy Spokane marches into Riverpark Square and sings Christmas carols occupy style.... more
Washington Water Power, now known as Avista, has been in the Spokane area since the late 1800’s. It has grown a lot since then.
Are you outraged that Washington Water Power, now known as Avista, has been in the Spokane area since the late 1800’s. It has grown a lot since then.
Are you outraged that Avista, which is basically a monopoly, is allowed to pay their executives anywhere near these amounts below. Avista has no risk, run a monopoly, are protected by the state and have little concern with what the rates are doing to a lot of people in their area.
What the heck is wrong with the board of directors?
Why is Avista allowed to be a monopoly!?!?
We have people in Spokane having to make the decision of either paying the Avista bill or food and medicine.

We Demand City Hall to un-do the ban on Wind Powered Generators that Avista's monopoly has created. We need freedom of choice and the power to have power!
This is not about the good hard-working people of Avista which is the majority of the working population there what I'm concerned about is how much profit did Avista make last year and how much did they give back to its community directly? this movement is about the greedy corporate CEO in the greedy piggish executives. Not about the hard-working people who are employed by this AND ALL monster monopoly's!
