Rally for Systemic Reform of Financial Industry April 10, 2009

A new group called “A New Way Forward” (heard of them from The Nation columnist William Greider when he appeared on Bill Moyers’ show about 2 weeks ago) is organizing coordinated nationwide rallies tomorrow, Thursday, April 11, to call for systemic reform of the financial industry, including breaking up and reorganizing insolvent financial institutions that have received huge taxpayer bailouts.

The Los Angeles rally is slated for 11 am at the Federal Building (11000 Wilshire Blvd.) in Westwood.

The organizers are planning for the rallies to also be outdoor phonebanks (to call the White House and Congress), so if you attend, you should bring your cellphone. If you bring your video camera, you can also contribute footage to the montage that Bill Moyers Journal is apparently going to compile of all the protests.
