via International People's Assembly:
We call on all activists fighting banker-imposed austerity – here in the U.S. and worldwide – to come to Detroit, Michigan, on October 5 and 6, 2013. Join the people of this city under siege in convening the International People’s Assembly Against the Banks and Against Austerity.
Join us in Detroit on October 5-6 to demand:
Cancel the debt to the banks which is strangling our schools, cities, states and countries.
Guarantee workers’ jobs and pensions and services for the community. No union busting. $15 minimum wage!
End undemocratic, racist emergency management of our cities and schools.
A jobs program funded by the banks to put the unemployed to work rebuilding our cities. The banks owe our communities billions of dollars for the destruction they have caused.
Moratorium on all foreclosures and foreclosure-related evictions. Housing is a right.
Repudiate student loan debt. Education must be free and available to all. Increase funding for public education.
Stop racism and attacks on immigrants, women, the LGBTQ community and people with disabilities.
The federal government must bail out the people, not the banks.
Money for cities, not for war–Hands off Syria.
Ban Fracking. No tar sands oil, petcoke, wood ethanol, etc. Reverse climate change.

We're well overdue for a people's bailout and Detroit would be an excellent place to start.

Right on !!!! Its a real good time for action like this!!!
