Occupy Wall Street to Obama: Don’t Be Wall Street’s Puppet
President Obama is on the brink of cutting a backroom deal that would give bankers broad immunity for illegally throwing tens of thousands of Americans out of their homes. The administration is pressuring state Attorney Generals to undermine an ongoing investigation into the massive “robosigning” fraud, in exchange for a payoff by the banks.
This is a clear, moral issue that cuts to the core of why we occupy. Instead of throwing corrupt bankers in jail, the administration is pushing to give them a get out of jail free card.
President Obama and the Attorneys General have a choice: do they stand with Wall Street, or do they stand with the 99%?
The occupy movement spread throughout the country because the American people will no longer abide the corrupt bargain between corporate and government elites.
We will not stand for a country where bankers that issued deadly mortgage backed securities are bailed out, but homeowners with mortgages are illegally thrown out on the street.
We will not stand for a system that gives campaign contributors a right to immunity, but doesn’t give people the right to a home.
We will not stand for a country where the 1% rule and the 99% have no voice.
On Saturday, November 5th, Occupy Wall Street is marching from Liberty Plaza to the Federal Building at Foley Square to protest this bankrupt deal. We demand accountability for the criminals that destroyed people’s lives and relief for those struggling for a home.
We will not stand for President Obama acting as Wall Street’s puppet.
