Walking Tour and Downtown Bklyn Chase Action!
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10
GOOD JOBS NOT GIVEAWAYS
Tax breaks are breaking the 99%
12:30-1PM: TEACH-IN @ LIBERTY PLAZA (ZUCCOTTI PARK)
ALIGN and Good Jobs NY will lead a conversation about the hundreds of little-known quasi-public, shadowy entities that regularly award tax breaks and other goodies to businesses that promise to create jobs or threaten to move to other states if they don’t get a deal. But New Yorkers are often not seeing the jobs – let alone good jobs!
1-1:30PM: Take the subway to downtown Brooklyn from Liberty Plaza. We’ll have a number of pre-paid Metrocards available.
1:30PM: WALKING TOUR OF DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN
Meet up at 81 Willoughby (N/R, A/C/F to Jay St-MetroTech)
Community members from FUREE will lead a short tour of Downtown Brooklyn’s publicly subsidized gentrification.
Approx 2PM: RALLY TO DEMAND SUBSIDIES DELIVER GOOD JOBS
Brooklyn headquarters of Chase at 3-4 MetroTech Center (Myrtle btwn Flatbush & Duffield).
Chase received a subsidy of $237 million from New York’s main job creation program to move 5,000 employees to MetroTech in 1988. Since then, Chase has made one of the largest series of layoffs in NYC history and has accepted tens of millions more subsidies from New Jersey to move jobs out of NYC. We’ll ask them them for our money back on a creative action you won’t want to miss!
It's time to ask JP Morgan CHASE for our money back!

Liberty Plaza - New York City
Date(s) - 10 Nov 2011
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
The bailout wasn’t the only time when the people’s money went directly to the pockets of rich private corporations. Granting corporate subsidies is a widespread practice that depletes more than $8 billion from New York’s coffers every year. Hundreds of little-known city and state quasi-public, shadowy entities regularly award tax breaks and other goodies to businesses that promise to create jobs, or threaten to move to other states if they don’t get a deal. Public resources go to those that don’t need them: the developers of huge sports arenas, luxury condominium towers, financial institutions, and other corporations that often fail to deliver jobs –let alone good jobs. Commercial offices adjacent to Liberty Plaza alone have gotten public money to the tune of $11 million. In other words, the 1% treat the 99% pretty much like an ATM! All this behind-closed door spending has very real impacts on the ground for New York’s communities. At this teach-in you will hear from policy advocates, community members and workers directly affected by wasteful corporate subsidies and learn how to get involved.
After the teach-in, we’ll lead a short tour of Downtown Brooklyn’s publicly subsidized gentrification and end at a creative direct action you won’t want to miss!
