Occupy Santa Cruz Info on SF Wells Fargo Protest; Occupy Meetings
by Various
Friday Apr 20th, 2012 8:13 PM
I'm reposting an announcement of a protest action against Wells Fargo up in S.F. coming up Monday and Tuesday as well as some local Occupy Santa Cruz meetings. For the information of visiting D.A.'s and police, these postings do not endorse any illegal actions, but they are part of a Conspiracy to Restore Justice. A lawful and righteous conspiracy.

I'm also including some abbreviated notes about Occupy Meetings. Fuller descriptions and more updates can be found at http://www.occupy.org .

Mortgage Mess: How Wells Fargo defrauds the public with mortgages every step of the way: from origination to securitization to foreclosure.

Predatory Lending: How Wells Fargo uses payday loans, student loans, and interest rate swaps to keep customers, students, and local governments trapped in a vicious debt cycle.

Too Big To Exist: How Wells Fargo abuses its powers as a large bank, from exorbitant bailouts and abusing the FED discount window, colluding with other banks to restrict any semblance of a free market.

Let’s show our solidarity and Monday start the heat on Wells Fargo!!!
