New Yorkers protest Steve Bannon and ICE profiteers
New York, NY - New Yorkers gathered to protest outside the 2018 Delivering Alpha Conference at the Pierre Hotel on July 18, 2018, where Steve Bannon participated as a speaker, to make clear that his far-right fascist beliefs are not welcome in NYC. The group also protested major investment firms that profit off of detentions and deportations that attended the conference.

Steve Bannon, former White House Senior Counsel and Executive Chair of Breitbart News in a speech to France’s far-right National Front earlier this year. Echoing rhetoric heard throughout Europe in the 30s and 40s, he told the gathering of modern-day fascists that “the tide of history is with us, and it will compel us to victory after victory after victory.” He encouraged the group to stick to its nationalistic, fascist roots. “Let them call you racists. Let them call you xenophobes. Let them call you nativists,” he implored the crowd. “Wear it as a badge of honor.”

At a time when millions of people are outraged over the Trump administration’s cruel immigration policies, major banks and money managers that are profiting off of Trump’s detention and deportation machine are getting set to host Steve Bannon, the former Breitbart editor who was a key architect of Trump’s rise to power and served as his top advisor.

Bannon will be be speaking at the Delivering Alpha 2018 conference on Wednesday, July 18th. The conference, co-hosted by CNBC and Institutional Investor, will be held at the The Pierre in New York City

Delivering Alpha sells itself as a gathering of top asset managers aimed at “tackling the critical issues facing investors in the economy.” Top executives from a host of Wall Street firms will be participating, including several that directly profit off of Trump’s immigration policies, such as Wells Fargo, JPMorgan, and Blackstone.

Bannon, one of the masterminds behind Trump’s rise and his xenophobic agenda, will be interviewed by CNBC’s Michelle Caruso-Cabrera in a late afternoon session titled “Midterms, China and Trump: A Political and Economic Perspective with Steve Bannon.” Bannon’s session will be followed by a cocktail reception, where he and other attendees of the conference will have an opportunity to shmooze.

It is scandalous that, as immigrant families live in fear across the country, Wall Street executives who profit off of Trump’s detention and deportation machinery are getting set to socialize with a key architect of Trump’s victory who has known white supremacist ties and who helped elevate a crassly xenophobic, racist political agenda to the center of US politics.
