WANTED: AMERICA'S BIGGSEST BANKSTERS

YOUR MONEY AND HOW WELLS FARGO GETS AWAY WITH IT

Student debt now exceeds the amount of all Americans’ debt for credit card and auto loans, with Wells Fargo Bank (WFB) as one of the largest lenders ($10 billion) for private student loans.

Yet students have had little presence and less voice in the peoples’ mobilization for the April 24 shareholders meeting in San Francisco for WFB, America’s biggest bank by market capitalization.

On April 10, 6:00pm at SFSU, HUMANITIES 587, everyone is invited to hear why so many people are upset at WFB. Families facing foreclosure, immigrants rights advocates stopping deportations, janitors calling for better working conditions, and others will meet with students to explore how they can collaborate. Included in the event will be a direct action training, lead by David Solnit, from the Occupy SF Direct Action Work Group.
Global Exchange's Shannon Biggs will be at the teach-in speaking about community rights.

Sponsors: Occupy Bernal, Occupy SFSU, Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment, Service Employees International Union, Women’s Action to Gain Economic Security, Global Exchange, International Forum on Globalization (www.ifg.org)
