space at le poisson rouge is sold out but you are invited to the people’s bailout livestream event:
6:30 – the church of the village, 201 W. 13th St., NYC
We will gather and watch the telethon, to launch The Rolling Jubilee, a campaign that buys debt for pennies on the dollar and does away with it. Instead of collecting the debt, we will abolish it and help free the debtors!
People shouldn’t have to go into debt for an education, because they need medical care, or to put food on the table during hard times. We shouldn’t have to pay endless interest to the 1% for basic necessities. Big banks and corporations walk away from their debts and leave taxpayers to pick up the tab. It’s time for a bailout of the people, by the people.
At this People’s Bailout Livestream event, Faith leaders will start the evening talking about the spiritual crisis of money, debt and power, and then we will have breakout conversations around education, housing, healthcare and credit card debt during the screening.
It will be a wild night of music, comedy, magic, education, and the unexpected, both at the Church of the Village and Le Poisson Rouge.
Special guests include Janeane Garofalo, Lizz Winstead, Max Silvestri, Hari Kondabolu, David Rees, The Yes Men, actor/director John Cameron Mitchell, Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel, Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth, Guy Picciotto of Fugazi, Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the Radio, Climbing Poetree, the Invisible Army of Defaulters, members of Healthcare for the 99%, Occupy Faith, and many more.
