Debt Ceiling Deadline – A PEOPLE’S GENERAL ASSMEBLY ON WALL ST

Tuesday, August 2,
The Bankers’ “Debt-Ceiling Deadline”

Come To A People’s General Assembly On Wall Street – Oppose Cutbacks And Austerity Of Any Kind

Gather at 4:30: Meet At The Bull, Just South Of Broadway And Morris Street, At The North End Of Bowling Green Park

As the two U.S. political parties unite to dismantle Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security, it’s clear:

The bankers are looting decades-old peoples’ programs and the Democrats can’t help us. Obama can’t help us. Elected officials can’t help us.

It’s time for the people to meet and take the bull by the horns!

The students, union activists, and others who organized “Bloombergville” — the three-week anti-austerity occupation on Wall Street’s doorstep — have called for an August 2 General Assembly/Speakout on Wall Street, at the bull, from 4:30 to 7, to protest the ongoing pro-bank, anti-people cutbacks and gather into working groups to plan for the September 17 occupation of Wall Street.

This is a call for every teacher, home health aid, parent, student, tenant, librarian, city/state employee, childcare provider, nurse, patient, employed or unemployed worker or recipient of Social Security or any type of public assistance: on August 2 come to Wall Street – the scene of the crimes now being perpetrated on the people – and make your voice heard!

The current depression-level crisis is not due to lack of revenue. It’s due to theft. The trillions that the banks are sitting on right now? That’s our money. Whether through taxes; the looting of pension and social security contributions; or the wealth we created from our labor – all of that belongs to us. Come to Wall Street August 2 and strategize — on how to get that back!

Well, kudos to the people who are organizing this, and we’ll see how it goes. Here’s a paragraph from the post at New Yorkers Against Budget Cuts: [...]

  3. In fact social networks have revolutionized our lives by incorporating all the basic elements of a person’s
    social life in one place. Unfortunately, it’s also
    introduced a host of ways to violate intellectual property laws.
