One thing that bothers me about getting emails from MoveOn.org is that they’re so needy. They always need money! Maybe that makes sense because they are a non-profit, progressive, public policy advocacy group and political action committee. They’ve managed to do a lot online and now they’re looking to get bodies out to this protest they’re having on Wall Street on Thursday.
Side note: I’ve taken a pic on that Wall Street bull before when I was a kid. It was cold and a little creepy, kind of like Wall Street itself in my opinion.
Here’s what MoveOn.org sent me:
“Right now politicians in Washington are making critical decisions about our economy: Are they going to let the big banks off the hook for ruining our economy or are they finally going to rein them in?
You can help make the decision for them. On Thursday in New York we’re getting together at a massive rally on Wall Streetâ€”along with allies across the progressive movementâ€”to send a clear message to the big banks and the politicians who protect them: We’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!
The rally’s going to be energizing and there will be tons of great speakers. But a good crowd is going to be the key to success: If enough of us come out we’ll make crystal clear that any politician who sides with the big banks over American families is going to face serious consequences at home.
Can you make it to the rally on Wall Street on Thursday in New York?
Here are the details:
What: Showdown on Wall Street.
When: The rally starts at 4:00 p.m. and we’ll begin marching on Wall Street around 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 29, 2010.
Where: Start at City Hall, 1 Centre Street, New York, NY, 10007. Map.
Wall Street’s reckless behavior cost our economy 7 million jobs and more than $700 billion in bailouts.
But while American families suffered, Wall Street executives and bankers got rich.
So on Thursday, thousands of usâ€”workers, members of consumer groups, MoveOn members, and many moreâ€”-are getting together to say “Enough is enough!” Voters are demanding real changes and we won’t rest until Wall Street is reined in.
If enough of us turn out, we’ll make it clear that any politician who sides with Wall Street will face the wrath of angry voters at home.
Hope to see you there!
Thanks for all you do.”
