Release Wall Street Protest Arestees Now!

Drop All Charges!

Arrest Criminal Bankers, Not Workers!

Sign the online petition

As we write (3:00 pm Friday), thousands of activists, students, youth, trade unionists, and community organizers are marching through the streets of the Wall Street financial district demanding „Bail Out the People – Not the Banks!“

Police have arrested 4 protesters so far, and they are being held at the 1st Precinct. All of them are members of the youth group FIST (Fight Imperialism Stand Together).

Please take action now to support the Wall Street protesters – demand that they be released and all charges dropped. The real criminals are in the executive offices and boardrooms of the banks and investment firms, not on the streets.

Here’s how you can help:

1. Call the First Precinct at (212) 334-0611

2. Sign the online petition:

To: Mayor Michael Bloomberg, NYC City Council, NYPD
CC: NY Congressional Delegation, Congressional Leaders, the NY Legislature, President Obama, Attorney General Holder, members of the media

I am writing to demand the release of all individuals who were arrested at the Friday April 3 protest on Wall Street.

It is not a crime to demand that our money be spent on meeting people’s needs, not for massive corporate bailouts. Marching for jobs and housing is not a crime!

The real criminals are in the boardrooms and executive offices on Wall Street, not the people marching for jobs, healthcare, and a moratorium on foreclosures.

Release ALL arrestees!
Drop the Charges!
Arrest Bankers Not Workers!
