For a Tax-Free Green New Deal
NEW YORK, NY, December 15, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — Join us on December 23, 1:00pm EST, at Louise Nevelson Plaza, next to the Federal Reserve Building of New York for live music with The Resistance Company and special guests David Shnak from Ecce Shnak, Squala Orphan and Hetep. We’ll also have free monetary history lessons, pizza and coffee, (first come, first served) to illuminate the Federal Reserve Banking system on the one hundred and seventh anniversary of the passage of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913.
The goal of this demonstration is to inspire people to study the corrupt history of The Fed, read the National Emergency Employment Defense (NEED) Act and if they agree with it, to call their congress representatives demanding their support for the NEED Act as a necessary first step toward forcing the Fed to bail out the 99% with a completely tax-free #GreenNewDeal rather than the banksters on Wall Street, the stock market, the fossil fuel industry and the foreign and domestic military industrial complex.
The NEED Act is a bill to create a full employment economy as a matter of national economic defense; to provide for public investment in capital infrastructure; to provide for reducing the cost of public investment; to retire public debt; to stabilize the Social Security retirement system; to restore the authority of Congress to create and regulate money, modernize and provide stability for the monetary system of the United States; and for other public purposes.
The NEED Act was last introduced in the 112th Congress as H.R. 2990 by then Representative Dennis Kucinich (D, OH) and the late John Conyers (D, MI).
Sue Peters, Green Party New York notes, “Legislation was written, vetted and introduced to Congress in 2011, to replace the speculative Federal Reserve System with a reliable, stable-value monetary system. The NEED Act was shelved by the Banking Committee at that time and remains at the ready. Now is the time to make this important change.” Unlike the Federal Reserve System, dealing with a pandemic would not automatically become a financial crisis. Instead we would have a government able to respond effectively and swiftly in a crisis with the power to fully fund a public healthcare system.
Louise Nevelson Plaza is at 73 Maiden Ln, New York, NY 10038.
Federal Reserve Awareness Day is sponsored by Occupy The NEED Act.
