The call to join us....
CODEPINK is heading to the DNC
in Charlotte, NC September 2-6 to Bust Up
Big Banks! Will
you join us?
Charlotte is known as “Wall Street South”;
it hosts the world headquarters of Bank
of America, as well as the East Coast headquarters
of Wells Fargo, making it the second largest
concentration of finance capital in the
US after NYC. We’ll highlight how our political
parties listen more to banks and corporations
than the American people. Let’s tell the
Democratic Party that DNC should stand for
Don’t Neglect Communities!
Sunday, September 2, for the mass Occupy
Wall Street South rally and march, and stay
for several days of powerful and creative
actions that give voice to the 99% and protest
the corporate takeover of our democracy.
Our presence at the DNC builds on the vital
work CODEPINK has already done to Bust Up
Big Banks. In March, we occupied Bank of
America branches all over the country to
honor International Women’s Day, while two
CODEPINK activists busted Bank of America
CEO Brian Moynihan on stage in NYC; in May,
we traveled to Charlotte to protest the
BofA’s shareholders’ meeting. Won’t you
join us to make this our most powerful Bank
Bust Up, ever?
Of course we’ll be carrying the full gamut
of CODEPINK concerns to the DNC, as well,
from Obama’s use of drones to ending and
preventing war. Help us bring the pink and
make Democrats think!
