A protest will be held in Santa Monica at 5 p.m. tomorrow, Thursday Oct. 13, outside a Bank of America branch to “demand jobs, not cuts and urge Wall Street to Pay Fair Share”.
The American Dream Movement event is part of a National Week of Action to support the Occupy Wall Street Protests and Promote Economic Justice.
The protest will be held outside the bank branch at 1301 Fourth Street, Santa Monica.
The protest will be made up of members of the American Dream Movement, led by MoveOn.org.
According to a press statement, there message is “Americans need jobs, not cuts, and we should pay for them by making Wall Street and millionaires pay their fair share.”
“For months, hundreds of thousands of members of the American Dream Movement have been urging Washington to focus on creating jobs, and make the tax system work for all Americans, not just the super-rich,” the statement read. “Yet there are still politicians in Washington who would rather force deep cuts to important programs that the middle class depends on just so they can give tax breaks to the rich—all the while doing nothing to create jobs.”
The American Dream Movement is a growing movement inspired by protests in Wisconsin and fueled by the brutal right-wing attacks on the middle class and the poor.
The American Dream Movement is made up of millions of ordinary Americans, along with dozens of leading grassroots organizations, fighting together for good jobs for all Americans, securing a future for our children and our communities, and finally making corporations and the super-rich pay their fair share in taxes.
