Grumbling among your friends about the way that AIG and other big Wall Street companies used federal bailout money to pay for extravagant parties and executive bonuses is fine, but it’s a small form of activism with a limited scope. You can expand the scale of your activism, and transform your resentment into a public statement, by participating in a Take Back The Economy protest tomorrow.
In New York City, the will be a protest at the Goldman Sachs Headquarters, 85 Broad Street, at 4:00 PM. In Columbus, Ohio, at high noon there will be a protest at the Morgan Chase offices at 100 Broad Street. In Newark, New Jersey, there will be a protest at the Wachovia Bank at 550 Broad Street. In Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, there will be a protest at the Bank of America at 1223 W. Broad Street.
Hm. There’s something funny going on with Broad Street. Anyway, there are protests in scores of cities around the country scheduled for tomorrow. Check out the Take Back The Economy web site for information about what’s happening near you.
