The plundering of retirement accounts, the job and investment losses flowing from the looting by executives, the fraudulent accounting, and the brazen criminality that we see paraded across the headlines have given us a unique moment, the opportunity of a lifetime to rescue our government from corporate control.
Now, as some of the vastly overpaid and crooked bosses of the Corporate State face the prospect of going to jail, our political “leaders” are suddenly embracing our language.
This Wall Street weekend will launch a series of events nationwide to channel the peoples’ sense of anger and proper indignation into a focused and disciplined movement to break the grip of over-reaching corporate power.
Our task is to have them embrace not just our words, but our agenda.
NOW IS THE TIME TO:
Ø Jail Corporate Crooks
Ø Protect Worker’s Pensions
Ø Promote Socially Responsible Business
Ø Stop Corporate Tax Dodgers
Ø Protect Main Street from Wall St.
