The People's Bailout

Livestream below for The People's Bailout scheduled for 8 P.M. EST, 5 P.M. Pacific, today - Thursday, 11.15.12.  A project of Occupy Wall Street's Strike Debt (blogged earlier starting here including video and links for further information through that post) the group is buying up and forgiving old debt in the ancient spirit of a rolling jubilee. 

Watch live streaming video from lepoissonrouge at

The telethon and variety show benefit at (le) Poisson Rouge (already sold out!), features, among others, Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel, Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth, Janeanne Garofalo, Tunde Adebimbe of TV On The Radio, Liz Winstead, Frances Fox Piven, Max Silvestri, Hari Kondabolu, David Rees, The Yes Men, John Cameron Mitchell, Jeff Mangum, Guy Picciotto of Fugazi, Climbing Poetree, The Invisible Army Of Defaulters, Healthcare For The 99%, and Occupy Faith. 

Tune in at your local time zone, share the news, tweet it around, pass on the embedding code and broadcast.  I believe you can donate here at Rolling Jubilee, but please check for yourself on that.  

More information below in a Democracy Now! interview with Pamela Brown of Occupy Student Debt and Strike Debt, one of the organizers for Rolling Jubilee.
