Goldman Sachs Teach In

We believe the interest rate swap between Goldman Sachs and the City of Oakland is immoral. The residents of our city live with chronic unemployment, poverty, foreclosures, school closures, limited library hours, and many other hardships.

Our tax dollars should NOT go to Goldman Sachs, a greedy Wall Street Bank! Goldman Sachs is one of the financial institutions whose unethical business practices contributed to the financial meltdown and foreclosure crisis. They got bailed out by our tax dollars and NOW they are making billions on interest rates swaps with cities and other government agencies, including Oakland. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

Stand up for the Oakland!! Attend our teach-in!

On April 4, we will commemorate the anniversary of death of Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King with a TEACH IN on the City of Oakland’s Interest Rate Swap with the Goldman Sachs.  Find out what you can do to help Oakland get out of this bum deal!
