Portsmouth, NH - Today, the New Hampshire Rebellion announced more details surrounding what is shaping up to be the state’s largest non-partisan political gathering in years. Hundred have signed up to march, and dozens of local business are signing up to support the walk.
“Granite Staters of all political backgrounds are passionate about fixing the systemic corruption in Washington, DC,” said Jeff McLean, Executive Director of New Hampshire Rebellion. “This July 5th, we will show that no presidential candidate can win in our primary without taking a real position on this root issue.”
Many local small businesses along the seacoast have partnered with NH Rebellion to help raise awareness for the movement and get more people involved.
New Hampshire candidates for Congress, Senate, and Governor are expected to participate in this non-partisan event.
“Political leaders have taken notice, and Republicans and Democrats alike will join us in our walk to address the corruption preventing real reform,” added NH Rebellion founder and
Harvard professor, Lawrence Lessig. “Our efforts have already changed the debate and we are just getting started."
NH Rebellion is working to ensure that the problem of money in politics is a central issue in the 2016 Presidential election by asking every primary candidate this pointed question: “How are YOU going to end the system of corruption in Washington, D.C."
From January 11th-24th of 2014, hundreds of people joined with Lessig and the NH Rebellion team to walk the length of the state. This marathon walk built community support and
commemorated the efforts of campaign finance reform activist Doris “Granny D” Haddock and internet activist Aaron Swartz. Similar walks will take place in 2015 and 2016 before the presidential primary.
