Showdown in Chicago a Huge Success

October 28, 2009

As expected, the Showdown in Chicago drew thousands of protesters and attracted a wide array of media attention.  The Huffington Post has especially good coverage of the events, including the video below, a slideshow of pictures, video of remarks by Senator Dick Durbin, and plenty of other videos at this page.

Above, listen to NPA Director George Geohl and a borrower facing foreclosure who spoke to the Huffington Post at the protest.  Geohl talks about the audacity of banks who led the economy into ruin and are now doing their best to retain the status quo:

It’s insane that the same financial institutions that created the foreclosure crisis, sent the economy into a tailspin and needed billions and billions in taxpayer bailouts are now leading the charge to kill financial reform. It makes no sense.
