The Alameda County Peace and Freedom Party and Movement presents
You Are Not A Loan
Strike Debt Bay Area
As individuals, families, and communities, most of us are drowning in debt for the basic things we need to live, including housing, education, and health care. All of us are affected by predatory lending and the effects of speculative Wall Street gambling. Our essential public services are cut because our cities and towns are held hostage by the same big banks that have been bailed out by our government. All of us are outraged that big banks don’t have to pay their debts, but we do.
Strike Debt is building a movement to challenge this system while creating alternatives and supporting each other. Debt resistance is just the beginning. Join us as we imagine and create a new world based on the common good, not Wall Street profits. Join members of Strike Debt Bay Area to talk about debt, contemporary capitalism, and emerging tactics of resistance and solidarity.
