Robin Hood Tax Campaign: Direct Action Training and Visioning

On Wednesday the 21st
The Brooklyn Commons
388 Atlantic Ave. BK, NYC,

Join us August 21 to dream up direct actions to bring attention to the Robin Hood Tax Campaign.

The Robin Hood Tax is a financial transaction tax that takes .05% from Wall Street transactions.

Just .05% creates $350 Billion dollars a year in new revenue for America. $350 Billion pays for universal healthcare, $350 Billion ends students debt, $350 Billion funds a green jobs program and much much more.

The Robin Hood Tax is movement legislation. It is a long-term fight for a more just world. The National Nurses Union, Transit Workers United, Vocal NY, Act UP and Occupy are throwing their weight behind this issue on Sept. 17th to begin to chart a vision forward out of perpetual Environmental and Economic Crisis.

Come to Direct Action Training and Visioning. Let’s come together and dream up creative ways to make an impact on Sept. 17th.

The rough sketch for S17 so far:

Meet at the United Nations/Dag Hammershkjold Plaza at 5PM, march to JP Morgan, then the Metropolitian Transit Authority and finally Bryant Park. This is a nice canvass of targets for us to paint an action on.

See you on 8/21 @ 7pm!
