OCTOBER 29 – #ROBINHOOD GLOBAL MARCH, Adbusters, Oct. 29, 2011
Adbusters, the global network that initiated the idea of Occupy Wall Street and their website OccupyWallStreet.org, has now initiated a new campaign, a global march set for Saturday, October 29, 2011, the eve of the G20 Leaders Summit in France.
Adbusters is proposing “let the people of the world rise up and demand that our G20 leaders immediately impose a 1% #ROBINHOOD tax on all financial transactions and currency trades. Let’s send them a clear message: We want you to slow down some of that $1.3-trillion easy money that’s sloshing around the global casino each day – enough cash to fund every social program and environmental initiative in the world.”
This is a proposal by Adbusters for the general assemblies of the Occupy movement to organize protests in cities throughout the world on Saturday, Oct. 29, 2011.
