The Federal Reserve is responsible for the nation's economic boom and bust cycle, for inflation which is essentially a tax on the poor and middle classes, for funding unconstitutional and unjust wars, and for the current economic crisis.
YOUR hard-earned federal income tax dollars go to pay the interest on the federal government's debt to a PRIVATELY owned bank (the Fed!), which then PROFITS from YOUR loss.
Please join us in front of the Pittsburgh Federal Reserve Building Downtown to educate the public about the Fed and gain support for Texas Rep. Ron Paul's HR 1207: The Federal Reserve Transparency Act to audit the Fed (Senate version is S 604: The Federal Reserve Sunshine Act of 2009, introduced by VT Sen. Bernie Sanders) and Rep. Paul's HR 833: The Federal Reserve Board Abolition Act.
Participants can either go directly to the Fed Bldg for the Noon rally, esp. if they're running late, or alternatively, meet with others at 11:30AM at St Stanislaus Kostka Church in The Strip, Pittsburgh's historic shopping district, where parking space is cheaper and more plentiful than in Downtown, then march to the Fed while distributing literature about the Federal Reserve and information on HR 1207/S 604 and HR 833 to shoppers.
Unofficial Pre-End The Fed! Gathering
Saturday, April 25, 2009, 11:30AM
Location: Outside St. Stanislaus Kostka Church in The Strip, Pittsburgh's historic shopping district.
57 21st Street
Pittsburgh, PA 15222
The tenative plan after everyone has met at the Fed Bldg is, depending on traffic (downtown might well be deserted) and how many people show up, we'll protest for a half hour to an hour and then march back up through the Strip and/or split up and go to the business districts in town, Oakland, Shadyside, South Side, Bloomfield and make a pass down both sides of the street (4 people per team at least). This would probably be a better use of everyone's time than waving signs on an empty street. We do need more signs though, so feel free to make some. For sign ideas see: http://endthefedusa.n...
Thank you and let's have a great day and peaceful event!!
