Banks got bailed out, but we got sold out. Again. And we're ABOUT to be sold out AGAIN!
Demand that Kentucky bring its money back home. Within the last year, Kentucky switched its banking relationship from a local bank here in Kentucky, to JP Morgan Chase. That needs to be reversed.
The banks seem to have rolled the White House in negotiating a settlement to the robo-signing suit. That settlement is expected to be announced next week. The New York Times and other sources report that it gives immunity to the big banks and their executives and prevents further investigations from uncovering the full extent of their misconduct and shoddy practices. Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway stands ready to oppose this settlement. We need to tell him we've got his back if he does, because there will be enormous pressure from the banks, the administration, and many of the other AGs to conform.
After the rally at noon, there will be a march to the Occupy Louisville encampment at 6th & Jefferson. There we will support that movement with our presence AND participate in a "teach in" on local banking issues presented by Catherine Aponte.
