PROTEST WELLS FARGO

Wells Fargo has a lot of money invested for the construction of private prisons for the detention of immigrants.

Saturday October 29
11am – to 12:00

Corner of Fulton St. and Hilton Ave, Hempstead

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.

Wells Fargo received $43 billion in taxpayer-funded bailouts 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.
