HARTFORD RALLY @ AIG
Market and State St.
1/16/09
12:00pm

If you have not been following the recent news covering the nation’s financial crisis let me sum it up for you, the people are getting screwed. While the majority of us prepare ourselves for trying times ahead, multi-billion dollar agencies are spending our money on “questionable investments” to say the least.

We have all been affected by these recent tragedies, and to show that we will no longer stand for these decisions that are truly fueled by greed instead of logic and reason, we urge you to join us, because together our voices can be heard.

The U.S. Treasury is giving out billions in stimulus payments to major corporations with no oversight as to how the money will be spent. AIG alone has received some $85 billion and has already spent $500,000 on a party at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in Southern California. $500,000 is enough to build several homes or even a school for struggling communities right now!

It’s time to be proactive if you’re struggling to make ends meet while high paying executives are taking vacations and receiving unbelievably large bonuses with your income tax money!

This is our money that they’re playing with! They must know that we’re not going to put up with this reckless spending!

Join Voices, a non-profit public enterprise, in a peaceful protest at the corner of State, Market and Prospect St., near AIG in Hartford.

We welcome anyone affected by the recent downturn in the economy and the unreasonable spending by these corporate executives. We will have signs, t-shirts and media attention, and we welcome you to make your own signs and t-shirt expressing your opinions about these issues. Our voices will be heard.
