Day of Action in San Francisco on December 2nd to "Tax the Rich!"
Wed Nov 30 2011
Rally at SF Federal Building Plaza in Afternoon and Defend Occupy Encampment at Night
Friday, December 2nd will see a full afternoon and evening of protest on the streets of San Francisco. With the rallying cry, "Stop the Cuts! Tax the Rich!", labor and community activists will occupy the Federal Building Plaza at 7th and Mission from 2pm. Later in the afternoon they will march past symbols of corporate and financial corruption, continuing into the evening with a rally and concert at the OccupySF encampment at Justin Herman Plaza.

At the occupation of the Federal Building plaza, speakers and singers will demonstrate against proposed cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. They will protest in favor of a single-payer health care system for the nation (also called "Medicare for All").

From there a march through the Financial District will target banks that enriched themselves while crashing the economy. In the evening marchers will celebrate and defend OccupySF at Justin Herman Plaza. The day of action will also include a late afternoon protest action at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in solidarity with SEIU Hotel Workers Local 2.

The event is sponsored by the San Francisco Labor Council and endorsed by Single Payer Now, the California Alliance for Retired Americans, Jobs with Justice, and others.
