Resolution in Support of Occupy Houston
 
Whereas, Occupy Houston’s goal is the end the corporate corruption of our democracy, and,
 
Whereas, Occupy Houston is demonstrating its message on a daily basis and,
 
Whereas, Occupy Houston has also joined with Good Jobs = Great Houston, Houston Interfaith Worker Justice in support of good jobs, the American Jobs Act, and
 
Whereas, the AFL-CIO, and many of its affiliated Unions are supporting similar “Occupy” events on Wall Street and in other cities in Texas and across the country,
 
Therefore be it resolved, that the Harris County AFL-CIO Council go on record of supporting Occupy Houston and its messages of ending corporate corruption of our democracy and standing up for workers and jobs.
