Bailout the People, Not the Banks! Demand a Moratorium on Foreclosures Now! Not One More Penny for Wall Street!

Amid the financial collapse of the United States, the Moratorium Now! Coalition to Stop Foreclosures and Evictions will march through the Financial District in downtown Detroit on Thursday, Sept. 25, beginning at 4:30 p.m.

We will assemble at the "Spirit of Detroit" on Woodward at Jefferson and march past the banks who are robbing us blind and stealing our homes.

Organizers for the Moratorium Now! Coalition to Stop Foreclosures and Evictions are calling on people to take to the streets of the Detroit Financial District demanding the immediate passage of Senate Bill 1306, which would impose a halt to foreclosures for two years in the state of Michigan.

The demand for a moratorium on foreclosures becomes more urgent everyday amid the proposed Congressional $1 Trillion bailout of Wall Street firms who are responsible for the worse economic crisis since the Great Depression.

All of the proposals advanced by the United States Treasury Department and Congress say absolutely nothing about bailing out the millions of households who are facing foreclosure, escalating fuel, food and energy prices, the lack of employment, health care and quality education throughout Michigan and the country as a whole. We must take to the streets now! We must demand that this swindle stop immediately and that the trillions of our tax dollars handed over to the military and the bankers be utilized for the needs of the people.

There will be a public meeting of the Moratorium Now! Coalition on Saturday, September 27, 11:00am-1:00pm at the Central United Methodist Church, Woodward at Adams, Downtown Detroit.
