Are you ticked off that not one investment banker has served one hour behind bars for nearly killing the economy in 2008 and 2009 and sending millions of your fellow Americans to the unemployment line and millions more into (or into near) bankruptcy?

on may 12Are you fuming that the slick and rich JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon is still wining like a four-year old for everyone to stop calling him names when he and his three-trillion-dollar-in-asset company were partly to blame for the still-very-sucky state of the U.S. economy?

And are you mad as hell that firms with wealth-exuding names like Goldman and Merrill and Deutsche are still rolling in billions of dollars while you're still rolling in donut holes, hunting for some sort of job that will somehow make a small dent in your ever-escalating bills (not to mention help you pay for that $4/gallon gasoline)?

If so, then you might want to join the May 12 Coalition -- an organization whose mantra is "Make big banks and millionaires pay" and that today will be gathering at 4 p.m. at various New York City locations (such as out front of Goldman Sachs headquarters and City Hall) to stage discussions on various topics (such as jobs, students, and education) and then proceeding to march down to Wall Street to "create a giant classroom without walls in order to teach Wall Street and New Yorkers about who really destroyed our economy and what we can do to save it."

Which sounds like a scream.

For more information, check out the Coalition's website. Happy protesting!
