Dear... ,

Last November 15th our peaceful occupation exposing Wall Street greed was violently evicted from Zuccotti Park.

One year later, we are launching the Rolling Jubilee - the next step in our movement to shine a light on the system that allows Wall Street to exploit the 99%.

Host a local viewing party of “The People’s Bailout” telethon to help raise funds so that we can collectively resist Wall Street greed.

The Rolling Jubilee, a project of the OWS offshoot Strike Debt, buys debt for pennies on the dollar, and then abolishes it.

The project launches with a telethon fundraiser featuring special guests like Janeane Garofalo, Jeff Mangum from Neutral Milk Hotel, Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth, Lizz Winstead and more.

We're live streaming it for free onthe Rolling Jubilee website starting at 8pm, and counting on folks like you to organize viewing parties.

Please host a viewing party in your local area.

100 percent of donations go to buying and abolishing debt. Plus, it's going to be a great show that you don't want to miss.

Occupy Wall Street's mutual aid networks have already proven their power in the face of Hurricane Sandy. Now we're going to use them to challenge the predatory debt collection and surveillance system that is crushing millions of people across the country.

The Rolling Jubilee is the anti-debt collector, the bailout of the people by the people that we’ve all been waiting for, a mutual aid project that will demonstrate the kind of values we want to base our economy on.

Hosting a local viewing party will help raise funds so that we can collectively resist the 1%.

Debt is the intersection between Wall Street and our lives; it is the tie that binds the 99%. Since the 1% won’t sponsor a #PeoplesBailout, we are going to bail each other out. Join us.

p.s. Although the Rolling Jubilee cannot buy specific individual's debt, we can liberate debtors at random. As a preliminary run, we abolished over $100,000 worth of debt.

Trump: His "Very Fine People," & The Killer in New Zealand are Connected

Thom plus logo Trump is claiming that renegade cops and skinhead bikers will back him up (as sheriffs are doing now, refusing to enforce new gun background check requirements). The white nationalist terrorist in New Zealand thanks Trump for giving him and his ilk "a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose."
