What? You disagree? Well, that’s what came up on last night’s Colbert Report. In an interview with the Times of London, the CEO of Goldman Sachs — a colossal Wall St. firm that, along with others, took our economy to the brink last year — claimed the firm is “doing God’s work.” The CEO, Lloyd Blankfein, is also the mostly highly paid Wall St. CEO, raking in $68 million annually. Meanwhile, millions are coping with unemployment and have lost their homes. Great work, pal.
Clearly, Blankfein and the rest on Wall St. have no idea what it’s like here in the real economy. Time get in their face to show them. Come to D.C. this Monday, Nov. 16 for a protest and rally with Public Citizen’s president, Robert Weissman, in front of the Goldman Sachs Washington headquarters on Capitol Hill.
What: Protest the banksters in front of Goldman Sachs and rally at the Capitol.
Where: Goldman Sachs, 101 Constitution Ave NW, Washington, D.C. (close to Union Station).
When: Monday, Nov. 16 at High Noon.
See you there! Let us know you’re coming here.
