I received an email informing me about a Wells Fargo protest that is going to take place on Thursday at 4PM in front of the Wells Fargo in West Baltimore. The protest is called Funeral for the American Dream. Good Jobs Better Baltimore is the organization that is promoting this event. They are going to use the #ripUSdream hashtag for live tweets during the event. You an actually see the Wells Fargo Branch at the 5:20 mark in my run on North Avenue video:
On Saturday some of the people behind Occupy Baltimore are encouraging citizens to show up at the Mayor’s Budget Workshop and actually ask hard questions. This type of community meeting is usually just a show where people can feel like they are being heard. Here is the Facebook invite that has more information.
Speaking of funerals for the American Dream… CBO: Federal workers make more than their private-sector counterparts.
