Today is A Day of Action Against Corporate Excess and Corporate Greed By Kate Thomas
As public anger erupts at over bonuses to AIG executives and almost daily revelations of abuses by Wall Street giants, we're channeling our frustration and anger into action that can make a difference. In just the last two days, thousands of people have signed up to march on major banks and other corporations including Bank of America, Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs. There will be more than 10,000 people in the streets at 150 bank locations in 35 states across the country today.
In the first national protests since the federal bailouts began, working families and a broad coalition of community groups are sending a message to Congress that we've had enough of corporate greed and lack of accountability. With the CEO of "Bailout King" AIG testifying in front of Congress today about his company's $165 million bailout-funded bonuses, it's more important than ever for us to mobilize against corporate excess.
It's time for real change, and we need solutions that will help build a strong, sustainable economy that works for everyone: the Employee Free Choice Act; affordable, quality health care for all; and strong banking reforms.
