Back to the Occupy Basics:
The FED, the Banks, and the Banksters


It’s been over a year since the launch of the Occupy movement, yet many of us still do not understand how the Federal Reserve, the private banking conglomerates, and the banksters who run them siphon off trillions of dollars for their own benefit to the detriment of the 99%. We continue to be deluged with confusing propaganda from the corporate media like the recent “fiscal cliff” onslaught.

A panel of four will explain how the system works and how we can fight back. Jane Smith, who holds a Masters in Economic and is one of the masterminds behind the Occupy Ideological Liberation Working Group, will explain some of the secretive workings of the Federal Reserve System. Find out what a “Swap” is, how they drain funds from municipalities, states, and universities, and how they connect up with the LIBOR scandal from Alex Roehrkasse, who also holds a Masters in Economics, and is one of the authors of the groundbreaking report “Swapping our Future”. Susan Harman, National Volunteer Coordinator for the Public Banking Institute, will explain how creating State and Municipal banks can re-direct funds away from the banksters and to the people, while Elizabeth de Martelli, Masters student at UC Berkeley, will speak to us about the Occupy Strike Debt campaign.


Monday from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, Occupy Forum. Location: 1005 Guerrero near 22nd, conveniently located blocks from 24th/Mission BART. Food and drink available for purchase to support our local "Café Que Tal".
