Pittsburgh End the Fed! Rally II

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:

*See DaveP's comment below for tentative plan after everyone has arrived at the Fed Bldg*

Some ideas for sign slogans:

"The Federal Reserve is the problem, not the solution"
"The Federal Reserve causes the boom and bust economy"
"The Federal Reserve causes the recession/depressions"
"The Fed in NOT part of the Federal government"
"No more Bailouts"
"No More Bailouts for Bankers"
"The Fed = Debt"
"The Fed = Personal AND National Debt"
"The Fed = Financial Slavery"
"End the Fed, End War"
"Fed Inflation = Worthless Money"
"Inflation = Taxation"
"Fed Money is Debt"
"Paper is Paper, Gold is Money"
"End Monetized Debt"
"Audit the Fed, Support HR 1207-Call Your Congressman NOW!"
"Repeal the Fed, Support HR 833 -Call Your Congressman NOW!"
"Abort the Fed, Support Prosperity"
"Abort the Fed, Support Liberty"
"Your Children Will Pay the Price!"

Thank you and let's have a great day and a peaceful event!!

    It was a little bit better than the last one in terms of turn out and handing out dvds/info although I'm hoping the next one we can possibly double our attendance.

    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)...I think this would be a better use of everyone's time than waving signs on an empty street.

    We do need more signs though...

    See you all there!
