Occupy Queens: March On the Big Banks

via Occupy Queens

June 9 • 1PM • 37Th Road Plaza • Jackson Heights

You are invited to join our March on the Big Banks on June 9 in Jackson Heights, a street theater performance of Occupy Queens’s Move Your Money Bank Action/Housing Working Groups. Some participants will dress up as houses made from cardboard. Others will play drums, carry signs (e.g., Foreclose Banks, Not People’s Homes), sing, chant and hand out flyers.

March participants will assemble 1:00 pm at the pedestrian plaza in Jackson Heights at the corner of 37th Rd. and 74th St. and begin to march at about 1:30 pm to at least 4 of the Big Banks located nearby. (Subway is 1 block away; E, F, R and #7 trains to 74th St./Roosevelt Ave.)

The purpose of this action is to raise consciousness in the community about the predatory and fraudulent practices of the Big Banks, specifically relating to housing foreclosures. Further, we will encourage people in the community to ‘move their money’ to local banks or credit unions that do not engage in deceptive practices.

Occupy Wall Street is a people-powered movement that began on September 17, 2011 in Liberty Square in Manhattan’s Financial District, and has spread to over 100 cities in the United States and actions in over 1,500 cities globally. #ows is fighting back against the corrosive power of major banks and multinational corporations over the democratic process, and the role of Wall Street in creating an economic collapse that has caused the greatest recession in generations. The movement is inspired by popular uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia, and aims to expose how the richest 1% of people are writing the rules of an unfair global economy that is foreclosing on our future.
