Strike Debt Bay Area Meeting: Ideas Into Action!
- We are still working jointly to Save The Berkeley Post Office and defend against privatization in general. An announcement of a sale of the downtown Berkeley Post Office by the Postal Service could come and at any time and we need to be ready to mobilize.
- We are actively engaging in the fight by Richmond, CA to save its citizens' houses from foreclosures using a novel tactic employing the taking by eminent domain of mortgages (not houses) from banks (not homeowners). Richmond, CA, ACCE, and the Richmond Progressive Alliance are taking on the entirely of Wall Street as it does everything it can to prevent anything of the sort from happening, and could use all the help that can be mustered.
In addition, we are exploring the use of a public bank to help Richmond, CA and other communities escape the thrall of Wall Street.
– Other projects include efforts to fight against student debt in conjunction with peeps at UC Cal, support for tenants’ rights in Oakland, a Debtors’ Union, a book group with semi-weekly discussions, and more.
