Nationwide protest against the Federal Reserve Banks and System and for sound money.
The Federal Reserve is NOT a government entity and is responsible for the nation's economic boom and bust cycle (e.g. the housing market bubble followed by it's collapse), 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 meet up at the Fed at Noon, or alternatively, meet 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, and then march to the Fed Bldg to meet others, while distributing literature about the Federal Reserve and information on HR 1207/S 604 and HR 833 to shoppers. See: http://www.meetup.com...
*See DaveP's comment below for tentative plan after everyone has arrived at the Fed Bldg*
