Bay Area residents are joining and supporting the Occupy SF and We Are the 99% movements in force this Wednesday, October 12, for a morning rush-hour march.

Californians have been hit hard by staggering unemployment rates and rampant foreclosures, with communities of color and working class communities bearing the brunt of the current economic crisis. Inspired by similar mass movements in New York, across the US, and around the world, residents and Bay Area community groups are speaking out.

The march participants are demanding that our banks pay their fair share of taxes and fines and that banks be held accountable for their role in causing this economic crisis.
 
Protesters are using the slogan “Foreclose on Wall Street West.”

SF Supervisor John Avalos, bestselling author Naomi Klein, and community members fighting to save their homes from foreclosure will address the march.

Residentes de la área de la bahía están apoyando y juntando con los movimientos “Occupy SF” y “Somos los 99%” con fuerza el miércoles 12 de octubre, con una marcha durante la hora punta de la mañana.

La gente de California ha sido bastante perjudicada por los altos niveles del desempleo y la proliferación de ejecuciones hipotecarias, y las comunidades de color y de la clase trabajadora han sufrido lo peor de la crisis económica actual. Inspirados por los movimientos parecidos en Nueva York y por todo los estados unidos y el mundo, residentes y grupos comunitarios de la área de la bahía están levantando la voz.

Los participantes de la marcha están exigiendo que los bancos paguen la parte correspondiente de los impuestos y las multas, y que se haga responsable a los bancos por su papel en causar esta crisis económica.

Los manifestantes están utilizando el slogan “Embargo al Wall Street del Oeste.”

Hablarán el supervisor de San Francisco John Avalos, la escritora Naomi Klein, y miembros de la comunidad que están peleando para salvar sus casas de la ejecución hipotecaria.

Democrat Avalos, like all the rest of the rotten Board of Supervisors, all Democrats, supports the attack on city worker pensions with Proposition C. He is doing the same thing the despicable Democrats always do: Pretending to care about the workingclass while doing the bidding of the capitalist class. There is not one peep from this worthless Board of Supervisors about stopping the illegal Navy's Blue Death air show over our City or stopping the grand larceny, gentrification scheme known as Central Subway. He and the rest of the Board of Supervisors joined in giving away sinking, polluted Treasure Island to the criminal Lennar Corporation, the same crooks that are causing grief in Bayview Hunters Point. Do not ever have anything to do with the Democrat-Republicans. The Green Party has an excellent candidate for mayor, Terry Baum. See

Here is Terry Baum denouncing the Central Subway and defending city worker whistleblowers:

The above sounds like a campaign rally for reactionary Avalos. No worker who cares about the future votes Democrat or Republican. We vote Peace & Freedom and Green. See:
