people of Oakland deliver a pink slip to city administrator Deanna Santana

City administrator Deanna Santana and her assistants have had near total control of the "negotiations" with Goldman Sachs - just one of many areas of responsibility where the city of Oakland has not been well served. Here people from Oakland unions, community organizations, and others (including members of the Coalition to Stop Goldman Sachs) tell the city council that Deanna Santana has got to go!

Tell the Oakland City Council to stand firm! No more business with Goldman Sachs until they drop the swap without termination fees!

The Oakland- Goldman Sachs swap termination issue has just been placed on the agenda for the Oakland City Council on December 4, 2012. The meeting begins at 5:30 pm in the third floor chambers at City Hall. This is agenda item number 14. To date Goldman Sachs has refused to negotiate a termination of the swap without Oakland paying them millions of dollars. If you can come support putting teeth into the city council's July 3 resolution to boycott business with the vampire squid, please do!
