We stand against a brutal, racist prison system that punishes the poor and people of color.
We joined the Solidarity call from Occupy Oakland and Occupy Wall Street to rally outside prisons, jails, and detention facilities as an act of solidarity with the Pelican Bay hunger strike, with communities dispossessed by the criminal INJUSTICE system, and with political prisoners everywhere.
We joined in solidarity with prisoner resistance from Pelican Bay, California, to New York.
We demand that Wells Fargo Dumps it's Prison Investments:
1) - Wells Fargo makes money from separating and imprisoning families
2) - Well Fargo profits from business with the GEO Group as
* Major Investor
* Broker-dealer of shares
* Documentation agent
* Financial Advisor
Wells Fargo pays lobbyists who help GEO lobby the government for policies that incarcerate more immigrants in/for Geo run facilities.
Wells Fargo made contributions to Georgia's HB87 (Arizona Copycat Law) sponsor Senator Bill Hamrick and to several politicians in State House and State Senate who voted in favor of HB87.
Well Fargo received $43 billion in taxpayer-funded bail-outs from the government to aide people with their mortgages and loans, but has been putting people in detention camps while foreclosing on the homes of many hard-working families.
