Strike Debt Bay Area introduces

The Debt Resisters' Operations Manual
Now in its second edition!

Presentations by Hannah Appel, Cassie Thornton and Jane Smith will include demystification of credit scores and other insights about the debt system and forms of resistance, along with provocative performance art.

Written by a network of activists, writers, and academics from Strike Debt, The Debt Resisters' Operations Manual reveals how the predatory debt system works to increase inequality, undermine democracy, and ruin lives. It provides detailed strategies for fighting common forms of debt and lays out an expansive vision for a societal movement of debt resistance. The full text of the manual is available here for free:

http://strikedebt.org/drom/.

Copies of the manual will be available at Occupy Forum on a sliding scale of $0-20.

Q&A and Announcements will follow. Donations to OccupyForum to cover our costs are encouraged; no one turned away!
