Tens of millions of working and poor people are facing the most dire economic crisis since the Depression of the 1930s. Yet our government is planning to hand over the U.S. treasury to Wall St. bankers. All that the politicians offer to people who are losing their homes, jobs, health care, education and pensions are bigger and bigger budget cuts to vital social services.

Enough is Enough!

I say NO to this injustice. NO Bailout of Wall Street bankers!

Instead, I demand the following emergency measures:

   1. Moratorium on home foreclosures and evictions.
   2. Freeze all job layoffs and extend unemployment benefits.
   3. Freeze all utility cutoffs & roll back gas, food and utility prices
   4. Protect workers' pensions and savings-hands off Social Security.
   5. Debt cancellation for working and poor people-no repossessions or wage garnishing.
   6. Moratorium on budget cuts in all social programs like health care, education, mass transit, youth programs, seniors programs, veterans programs and others.

Sincerely,
