Wednesday: Direct Action Training and Visioning for #S17 Robin Hood Tax Action

The Robin Hood Tax

via the Occupy Network team and S17 Robin Hood Tax action partners:

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

The Robin Hood Tax is a galvanizing issue for this historical moment, and it's a winnable fight to boot. It 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 our collective weight behind this issue on Sept. 17th to begin to chart a vision forward out of perpetual Environmental and Economic Crisis.

Come together with us for a Direct Action Training and Visioning at the Brooklyn Commons at 388 Atlantic Ave.

Let’s dream about how to best make a tangible impact this S17. We have a rough sketch of plans so far, but in order to create an action of creativity and finesse, we need you!

We hope to see you there for this important brainstorm session where we’ll create a concrete plan for how we should proceed.

Wednesday, August 21st
The Brooklyn Commons
388 Atlantic Ave. BK, NYC
7PM
