Major financial institutions will converge on the GAIM USA Conference in Boca Raton on January 24, 2012. Join us to demand they divest their holdings in private prison companies like CCA and the GEO Group.
Protesters in 14 other cities across the country will converge on branches of different financial institutions.
The GAIM USA conference is the largest annual gathering of hedge funds and large institutional investment managers in the USA. Major investors in private prisons who will be participating include: Wells Fargo, Bank of America, General Electric, Vanguard, FMR/Fidelity, BlackRock, Lazard, and others.
These big financial institutions are major investors in CCA (Corrections Corporation of America) and GEO, the nation’s two largest for-profit companies. These are two immigration prison monsters with very close ties to Florida: The GEO Group has its headquarters in Boca Raton, and CCA has plans to build a massive immigration prison in Southwest Broward. www.ccagoaway.org
