Strike Debt Bay Area: Debt Resistance is NOT Futile! @ Paris Baguette
Aug 26 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Strike Debt is building a debt resistance movement. We believe that most individual debt is illegitimate and unjust. Most of us fall into debt because we are increasingly deprived of the means to acquire the basic necessities of life: health care, education, and housing. Because we are forced to go into debt simply in order to live, we think it is right and moral to resist it. Come get connected with SDBA’s projects!
