St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.COM) -- On Friday, November 30 at 7:00 a.m., Minnesota families and tax payers taking part in the group, 'The Action", will begin a 30-hour vigil to mark 30 days until the fiscal cliff.

Their message: to put the middle class ahead of millionaires and end additional tax breaks for the top two percent.

Minnesotans will gather outside the Congressional offices of Representatives Chip Cravaack, Erik Paulsen and John Kline.

The vigil will end December 1 at 1:00 p.m.

The Action, says that for months, some in Crongress have held the middle class hostage to tax cuts for the wealthiest two percent of Americans.

The Senate has already passed legislation to keep middle-class taxes from rising

The Action is a campaign to demand fairness and progress from Congress by extending middle-class tax cuts and ending the additional Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest.
