NPA 2012 - Geithner, Wells Fargo, FHFA
Over 1,000 of us traveled to Washington D.C. to expose, pressure, and challenge the 1%, mega corporations, and the political elite.

Over 1,000 of us showed up to Secretary of Treasury Tim Geithner's home to demand he support a Robin Hood tax–a tiny tax of less than 0.5% on Wall Street transactions–and a thorough investigation of the bankers who caused this crisis.

At Wells Fargo, we spoke about how the bank is a major investor in the two largest private prison operators in the country–the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) and the GEO Group. These companies fill their prisons by spending millions of dollars on lobbying to keep the immigration and criminal justice systems broken.

At FHFA, hundreds of families facing foreclosure and community leaders from across the country delivered giant “pink slip” to Ed DeMarco, its acting director. DeMarco, a Bush-era bureaucratic holdover, oversees Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which hold over half of mortgages in the U.S. He is harming millions of underwater homeowners by refusing to support mortgage principal reduction and restore the housing market. Every day that DeMarco doesn’t act, another 6,296 homes get a foreclosure notice in the mail.
