Protest Wells Fargo CEO in Raleigh on November 30!
Posted by raleighfist on November 24, 2011
On Wednesday, November 30, the President and CEO of Wells Fargo, John Stumpf, will be speaking on NCSU’s campus in Raleigh. With the growth of the Occupy movement across the country, fat cat bankers like Stumpf and other 1%ers have been confronted in many creative ways for their role in foreclosing on millions of working peoples’ homes, for sitting on trillions of dollars in bailouts and lining their pockets while more than 30 million people are unemployed, while people are hungry, or without healthcare, and while state governments carry out brutal austerity programs. Wells Fargo and other big banks also invest millions of dollars into the prison industrial complex, and in particular immigrant detention center, and are a primary engine behind the record number of raids and deportations of immigrant families — all in the name of profit. Raleigh FIST is circulating the following announcement from Occupy NCSU and Occupy Raleigh with important information about various actions that will take place on November 30. Please circulate this far and wide and come out to put some heat on Stumpf in Raleigh!
Make the banks and corporations pay for their crisis!
Tear down the prison industrial complex!
Stop the raids and deportations!
Expand the Occupy movement!
John G. Stumpf, President and CEO of bailout-recipient Wells Fargo is coming to NC State’s Campus next Wednesday, November 30th at 4:15pm. He’ll speak to students and the public about his career, leadership experiences, and perhaps the $19 million in taxpayer money he earned last year foreclosing on American homes. At the conclusion of his speech, he will take questions from the audience.
Occupy NCSU is calling you, all local occupations, and all citizens concerned with economic injustice to action on November 30th. Together, we will voice the message of the 99%, the message of fairness and justice to the economic majority. Occupy Durham, Occupy Chapel Hill and Occupy Raleigh will all be participating! United we are strong. Together we are stronger!
Meet at 1:00pm in the Brickyard Plaza in front of DH Hill library for an Action Orientation. There will be MANY fun ways to participate. If you want to join us, but are not sure what you’d like to do, this will be the best time to figure it out! Location: http://goo.gl/9E4qP
Our Embargo Wells Fargo demonstration starts at 2:15pm on the sidewalk on the Hilsborough Street side of Nelson Hall. Bring your favorite 99% signs. Shout your favorite 99% slogans. Let’s be heard! Location: http://goo.gl/RTw3J
Planning to Go Inside?
Be sure to arrive between 3:30pm – 4:15pm to reserve your seat inside the Nelson 3400 Auditorium (3rd Floor). The auditorium holds 350 people and is open to the public. You’ll have the opportunity to participate in the Q&A session following the speech, so come prepared!
We’ve discussed several awesome ideas, but no consensus yet. Final plans will be made at next Tuesday’s Occupy NCSU meeting. More details as they become available.
See you soon!!!
