Our Coalition

The Oakland Coalition to Stop Goldman Sachs has come together to discuss economic questions that have come to light through the activism of the Occupy Movement.  The public awareness campaign of the OCSGS has been mounted to draw attention to the unfair terms of the Oakland Bond Swap with Goldman Sachs Company.  The concerns and demands are as follows:

  1. The City of Oakland should end its relationship with Goldman Sachs.
  2. Goldman Sachs should return all monies paid to the City of Oakland since 2005.
  3. The City of Oakland should use the monies paid to Goldman Sachs to restore jobs and vital city services that have been cut for budgetary reasons.
A dynamic group of individuals have united together to work in this coalition.  Members of the following groups are involved in the work, including: ACCE,  Block by Block Organizing Network, CAN, Decolonize Oakland, ILWU, NAACP, R.O.O.T.S., Occupy Research,  and SEIU.
