Protest Gov. Corbett, “The Gas King,” in Philly Tuesday
When: Tuesday, May 15th, 4 pm
Where: Prince Music Theater, 1412 Chestnut Street
What: On Tuesday May 15th, Governor Corbett is coming to the Prince Theater in Philadelphia to address the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce. Governor Corbett has made his priorities very clear: corporate giveaways, environmental devastation, and
mass incarceration. During his short time as governor, Corbett has made massive cuts to education, medical assistance, and social services. He’s simultaneously given the fracking industry carte blanche across the state and significantly increased spending on prison construction.
