We summarize last week’s activities; announce upcoming events for next week; and comment on increasing global calls to raise worker wages, the historic decline in the US economy, Congressional efforts to reward the nation's big banks by further weakening regulations, "zombie banks," and how the corporate right "not to speak" may yet again trump health and democracy in Vermont…and elsewhere.
Thursday, July 10 Potluck – 6:30 pm / Program – 7:30 pm Peace House/Cleveland Friends Meeting 10916 Magnolia Ave., Cleveland
How do banking corporations influence our lives? How did they become the most powerful subset of corporations in our nation? And what can we do personally and politically to weaken their economic and political control over our society and us?
Bank of America is taking people’s homes through illegal and fraudulent foreclosure proceedings. At its core, the mortgage crisis was created by big banks playing fast and loose with our housing- we’re here to take it back and foreclose on the very institutions that would put us out of our homes! Rally for a moratorium to end all foreclosures. Bank of America on Green Valley Road.
