Rally Today: Bail Out the People, Not the Banks!
There are those who think that with millions of home foreclosures nationwide, the government should bail out the people, not the banks.
In conjunction with nationally coordinated local protests called for October 24-27, members of the ad hoc committee will be appealing to the masses in Buffalo at 4PM today.
Their statement: THERE WILL BE A PROTEST TO DEMAND AND FIGHT FOR WHAT WE the PEOPLE NEED, which is NOT to have trillions of dollars of OUR money given to the richest one per cent of the population, and nothing for working and poor people.
We will call for DIRECT HELP, including emergency moratorium on home foreclosures and evictions, no budget cuts in education, health care or services we need, no layoffs, extend unemployment benefits, no utility shut-offs and no more rate increases, debt relief for students, poor and working people, protection of public and private pensions and jobs at a living wage.
Agree with them? March on down and find out what you can do. Or you can sign the online petition.
This event is endorsed and co-sponsored by: Buffalo Forum, Buffalo State Students for Peace, Center for a Livable World, Citizen Action of New York-WNY, Coalition for Economic Justice, Code Pink Buffalo, Green Party of Erie County, International Action Center (member of the Ad Hoc National Network to Stop Foreclosures and Evictions), Western NY Peace Center
