Momentum Grows for A16 Anti-Bankers Protest in Washington

 Annual Policy Conference

April 16th in Washington, DC

BAIL OUT THE PEOPLE, NOT THE BANKS!!!

THE MORTGAGE BANKERS ASSOCIATION (MBA)—the biggest national lobby of all the banks—including the criminal predatory lenders, that are busy evicting your neighbors, relatives, friends and maybe you from your home—is holding it’s annual policy conference in Washington D.C., on April 16 and 17. Their main goal is to make sure that bankers continue to get bailed out while families get tossed out!

April 16th — growing —

50,000 EMAIL MESSAGES SENT TO THE HOUSE AND SENATE BANKING AND FINANCE
COMMITTEE- SAYING – DON’T MEET WITH THE MORTGAGE BANKERS ASSOCIATION

In response to an online petition campaign at
StopForeclosuresandEvictions.org, over 50,000 email messages have been sent to the members of the House and Senate Banking and Finance Committees demanding a
moratorium on bank foreclosures and evictions. The number is continuing to grow!

The petition says, in part “..The speedy, expensive, and extraordinary action that the Federal Reserve Bank took in response to the Bears Stearns crisis a few days ago is, in reality, tantamount to a government-enacted moratorium on bank failures…The Fed’s action required no legislation,
no hearings, no studies, no half measures, and no time lag. Why is it, then, that a similar moratorium on home foreclosures and evictions cannot be enacted to stop the largest number of home foreclosures since the Depression of the 1930s?”

ENDORSEMENTS GROWING – 44 DIFFERENT STATES ORGANIZING FOR APRIL 16!

BUSES, CARS AND VANS WILL BE ROLLING
ON APRIL 16TH!


Momentum is growing around the country. There are now over 550 community based endorsers from 44 different states organizing for the demonstration. Transportation is being organized from Michigan,Ohio, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, North Carolina,
Georgia, Florida and other states.

D.C., PG county, College Park, Northern Va., Baltimore and Maryland activists are putting on their marching shoes. In fact, anyone who is just plain fed up with the injustice of people losing their homes – who want to stop evictions, homelessness – who don’t want our tax money spent to bail out one more multi-billion dollar bank rather than helping
poor and working people – are making plans to be outside the Mortgage Bankers Association’s annual policy making conference on April 16th to say:

Freeze Foreclosures and Evictions – declare a moratorium now – Bail out the People, not the Banks.

Stop the Foreclosures

SIGN THE PETITION
Tell the House and Senate Banking and Finance Committee you want a Moratorium on Foreclosures and Evictions NOW!
