AFPF Statement on Attack by "Occupy" Movement
AFPF Statement on Attack by Occupy Movement
Americans for Prosperity Foundation (AFPF) issued the following statement today:
While we support the right to free speech and to peaceably assemble, it is saddening and unacceptable that the occupy group launched an attack on our own peaceable assembly and expression of free speech, said AFPF Executive Vice President Tracy Henke.
Henke continued, There is a deep divide in our fundamental vision for America. We at AFPF advocate for individual freedom and responsibility, ideas that enrich and empower society as a whole.
Rather than inciting class warfare, our leaders need to focus on creating an environment that will enable American businesses to create jobs and economic growth–and they need to condemn these increasingly violent protests.
In hundreds of AFPF events, there has never been an arrest or reported act of violence by our members.
