Breaking News: San Francisco City Workers and Allies Protest Twitter CEOs

for web site

The City claims a budget deficit, then why are corporate giveaways still happening?

Healthcare corporations, developers, Tech CEOs and banks thrive by successfully carving out an economic refuge that regular people cannot access. It is a privilege for the 1% that does not reach the people who actually deserve economic relief.

Thats why on Feb 12 we marched from the Department Of Human Resources to Twitter to  end corporate giveaways to healthcare corporations and Tech CEOs.

We were covered by the media nationwide!  See the press clips below.
