I'll take 3 billion, Uncle Sam...

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 health care, 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 this 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, which is the small triangular park that has the Wall Street bull at the northern tip.

What: Say NO to the Wall Street bailout
When: Thursday, September 25:  4pm
Where: Southern end of Bowling Green Park, in the plaza area, by the bull statue
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 precedent and we have to stop it!

Since Wall Street is asking us to give them money for their worthless investments, some folks are planning to bring their OWN junk to Wall Street and see if they’ll buy it. Bring your collectible mugs and limited edition Thomas Kinkade prints and add ’em to the pile!   This action inspired by Buy My Shitpile –  (
