 #D23 Illuminate the Fed Chicago – Bring Flashlights!

Orginized by  FedUp100, Illinois Anonymous Legion and The Chicago Anonymous.On December 23 America’s private banking cartel known as the Federal Reserve turns 100 years old and We the People have a simple message: Reform or Retire.
Nowhere in the U.S. Constitution did the Founders bestow authority to print money on a handful of private banks operating in secrecy from Congress and the people. The right to coin money belongs to the U.S. Treasury alone. For a century the Fed – a network of 12 banks that are 100% privately owned – have controlled our money supply by creating and loaning dollars as DEBT which the public has to pay back with interest.
Americans are Fed Up with the Fed which is why on its Centennial we will be illuminating it: shining light on an institution that exercises power in complete darkness. Join the festival of lights in Chicago on #D23 and ILLUMINATE THE FED as coalitions of citizens stage actions at all 12 Federal Reserve Banks nationwide. Bring flashlight!

EMERGENCY MEETING On WEDNESDAY at THE OVERFLOW COFFEE BAR AUDITORIUM, 1550 S. STATE, CHICAGO  (doors open at 6:30, starts at 7:00, street parking with meters, some free parking, and a lot one block west of the Overflow;  the Overflow has food for purchase).

Sponsored by THE FAIR TRADE COALITION AND MANY OTHER GROUPS (including MTA) are asking you to come to this emergency meeting.

Everyone is encouraged to come, no RSVPS necessary, non-partisan. Josh wise, executive director of the Fair Trade Coalition, will give us all the information we need to understand what’s at stake if the Trans Pacific Partnership passes via fast-track without congressional input or discussion. This could be up for a fast-track vote as soon as this week, though we doubt it— if that happens, then of course, this meeting is cancelled, so watch your news sources carefully. This is a non-partisan event—it’s not a fundraiser—and it is truly a national emergency!!
