Public Outdoor Town Hall to Demand a People’s COVID-19 Bailout!
Tomorrow! July 11, 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 pm
Where? East Park, 180 Shrewsbury St. Worcester!
We Want Bernie Worcester and Humanity First Movement Massachusetts, with participation from other organizations, as part of a coordinated national event organized by the Movement for a People’s Party (MPP, peoplesparty.org), will be bringing to our Representative our demands for a full “people’s stimulus” in the next Congressional Covid Stimulus Bill (see below.)
Congressman Jim McGovern of Worcester has agreed to be present to hear our stories and respond to us.
Face masks and social distancing will be expected of all participants.
This will a peaceful non-violent event in the spirit of democratic civic engagement.
The event will be live-streamed for those who can’t (or shouldn’t) attend in person.
Chris Horton of Worcester, a volunteer with We Want Bernie Worcester, said: “In the coming months, if parts of the economy fail to recover and many small business are allowed to fail, and if the extra unemployment relief payments and the moratoria on foreclosures and evictions end as scheduled, people rightly fear that their situations would become desperate.
“Congress has already authorized trillions of dollars in financial relief and assistance to large financial institutions, corporations and the very wealthy. We are asking our Representatives to firmly block any new relief package that doesn’t fully fund the needs of the people.”
The demands, in short, are:
1. Defund police and divert funds back to schools and social services
2. Medicare for all
3. Monthly $2,000 cash payments for all
4. Cover payroll to protect small business jobs
5. Suspend rent and mortgage payments
6. Suspend student and credit card loan payments
