OCCUPY REDWOOD CITY
LEADS "TOUR OF SHAME"
TO BIG BANKS

If you missed the first two bank tours, third time's the charm! :) TODAY in downtown RWC, Occupy Redwood City will lead their second "Tour of Shame" march protesting the crimes of big banks like Wells Fargo and Bank of America. After their successful actions in December and January, the group is back to keep holding the banks accountable for their actions, as well as to educate the public. Occupy RWC will be providing bank patrons and passers-by with information about how to move their money into local banks or credit unions.

The Tour has two main goals: To hold banks accountable for their role in the financial crisis, and to educate the public on banks' crimes. This time however, we are also partnering with labor and we will be expanding our targets to include misbehaving corporations as well as Big Bad Banks!

Occupy has been taking hold across the Peninsula: Other Occupy groups have been established at Stanford and in Palo Alto, Mountain View, and Half Moon Bay. Occupy RWC's event is being dubbed a "Strike Back Saturday," similar to Occupy San Jose's weekly "Wall Street Wednesday" marches against the banks.

Occupy RWC convenes every Friday evening at 5pm on Courthouse Square. For further information, please contact James at orwcmedia@gmail.com.
