Hyatt Regency in San Francisco:
Bond Buyer's Conference and Hotel Picket

Coalition members and others entered the Bond Buyers' Conference, held on October 17, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in San Francisco. They interrupted Goldman Sachs Vice President Ian Parker as he began his speech. They demanded that Goldman Sachs end the interest rate swap with the city of Oakland without paying millions of dollars in a "termination fee." Meanwhile, coalition members supported a picket line of workers against Hyatt's anti-worker policies, and also spoke out against Goldman Sachs' toxic swap deal with Oakland.
