Sun Apr 29 2012 (Updated 05/02/12)SEIU 1021 Asks: Downtown Greed or the City We Need?
Sun Apr 29 2012 (Updated 05/02/12)Twenty-Three SEIU Members and Supporters Arrested During SF Protest in Front of BofA
On April 18th, in one of the largest rallies in SEIU 1021's history, 23 members were arrested in front of Bank of America Wednesday for taking a stand against mega banks and corporations who have been cheating San Francisco residents for over a decade. At the intersection of Van Ness Avenue and Market Street, more than 1,300 people were chanting “Let the People Go, Arrest the CEOs.” They were there to support the protesters, who sat in the crosswalk. By 6:30 PM, one by one each of the 23 protesters were handcuffed and put into the back of SFPD vans. On the front and back of each protester were large stickers that read “It’s time to draw the line: downtown greed or the city we need.”
“We chose to be arrested at a symbolic intersection: It’s the intersection that houses the Department of Human Resources and Bank of America, said Larry Bradshaw, Vice President of SEIU Local 1021. “That intersection symbolizes City Hall tax policies that prioritize tax cuts for the 1% while demanding pay and health care cuts for the 99%.” Research shows that only 10 percent of San Francisco’s registered businesses are paying the local payroll tax. The tax fails to tax highly profitable sectors of the economy such as banks like Bank of America and corporations.
