This week the White House is trying to push through the biggest financial theft in world history with nary a stitch of debate. They're asking for a blank check for over 1 trillion dollars to bail out George Bush's Wall Street cronies who created this economic crisis in the first place.
If this passes, we can forget about any money for environmental protection, to counter global warming, for education, for national healthcare, to rebuild our decaying infrastructure, for alternative energy.
This is a historic moment. We need to act now while we can influence the debate.
Let's rally against the bailout in the heart of the financial district!
Gather at 4pm, this Thursday, Sept. 25 in the plaza at the southern end of Bowling Green Park in New York City, which is the small triangular park that has the Wall Street bull at the northern tip.
(Not in New York City? Organize a rally in your neck of the woods.)
When: Thursday, September 25: 4pm
Where: Southern end of Bowling Green Park, in the plaza area
What to bring: Banners, noisemakers, signs, leaflets, etc.
Do whatever you can for this historic event and contact all your groups and friends. This proposed financial bailout is without precedence and we have to stop it!
We have everything we need to create a large, peaceful, loud demonstration.
Together, let's get started.
- Seriously yours,
Billionaires For Bush
