Hi All,
Just a reminder! This is one of at least 10 single-payer actions 
happening across the country on Thursday.
It'll be a quick action--8:45 to 9:15am--photo ops, quick interviews, 
then we have our hearing.
See you all there,
Join Aetna 17* on Thursday, February 25, as we return to court on the 
day of Obama's healthcare reform summit:
* Aetna 17 are single-payer activists who sat-in at the insurance 
giant Aetna last September to expose their deadly profiteering and to 
push for Medicare for All
What:  Protest Obama's Health Summit with Aetna 17
When: Thursday, February 25, 8:45am-9:15am
Where: Criminal Court of New York City, 100 Centre St. (below Franklin)
On the same day President Obama convenes a "make-or-break" bipartisan 
summit on healthcare reform, the 17 protesters who sat-in at Aetna 
are returning to court to continue our legal battle.
While we're there at the court house, we figure we'd use the 
opportunity to answer a question Obama asked during his State of the 
Union address:
"If anyone from either party has a better approach that will bring 
down premiums, bring down the deficit, cover the uninsured, 
strengthen Medicare for seniors, and stop insurance company abuses, 
let me know."
OK. "Obama, Letting You Know: Medicare for All"
(that's the message on our giant banner, plus we'll be wearing 
Medicare for All shirts)
We need your support, so please show up and bring a lot of people 
with you! Photographers from the wire services (Getty and others) 
will be there, and we have gotten into the New York Times and USA 
Today before, so let's make it big and give the reporters an 
alternative angle to report on the Obama summit story!
See you there.
