TELL THE BANKS - BAIL OUT OUR SCHOOLS & SERVICES!

In the past year, we have seen the banking industry report record high profits, while our schools, jobs, benefits, pay, and crucial public services have been cut to shreds.

On April 18th, while many of us rush to the post office to file for our tax returns, banks will enjoy yet another year of massive tax breaks.

Therefore, Labor Unions and Community Activists will be rushing into JP Morgan Chase, Citi Bank, Bank of America and Wells Fargo on April 18th to demand bank managers sign a check over to the City of Oakland for all the Property Taxes that the city has lost from foreclosures.

Please tell EVERYONE! Your coworkers, neighbors, friends, and family.

Protest organizers have gone back to sleep ever since Obama took office. You've had a long break and now it's time to get back to work. Time to get off your butts and do what you do best and start kicking some ass the way you used to when Bush was in power. Time to wake up and smell the coffee for Obama was never calling the shots. The republicans call the shots no matter who is in office and always will. Time to wake up. Rise and shine.
