June 26, 2012 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Where: Sgt. Mark Dunakin Room 1st Floor
Oakland City Hall
The Finance Committee will discuss the city’s interest rate swap with Goldman Sachs. Our coalition will argue that the city should not accept a termination fee. Instead, our city leader must stand strong and tell Goldman Sachs that the swap is immoral, unjust, and possibly illegal! DROP THE SWAP! Bring signs! Sign up to speak!
We are expecting journalists from the Wall Street Journal and Rolling Stone, among others, to attend this Finance Committee meeting! We are starting to get national press as cities, municipalities, transit districts, and school boards across the world are suffering at the hands of Wall Street Financial institutions and their toxic interest rate swap deals. All eyes are on Oakland as we pressure our elected officials to stand up and fight!
