"The Time Has Come for Democrats to Draw a Line in the Sand"
"Tax Day: Make Them Pay" Protest Targets Bank of America
Monday, April 18, Noon-1 p.m.
Bank of America
10 Santa Rosa Ave. at 4th St., Santa Rosa
The nation's largest bank will be the target of a tax-day protest in what organizers say is a chance for Sonoma County residents to speak out against the financial giant's longstanding practice of avoiding federal income tax on its multibillion dollar annual earnings.
Sonoma County MoveOn, the event sponsor, and other local groups will meet at noon to picket the Bank of America branch office at Santa Rosa Avenue and Fourth Street.?MoveOn describes the event as "crossing party lines," and said Democrats, Republicans, and Independents in 300 cities across the country will be joining together in similar "Tax Day: Make Them Pay" protests.
MoveOn decided to target Bank of America, according to MoveOn County Coordinator Linda Hemenway, because the bank not only paid no corporate taxes on record earnings in 2010, but also received a $6.6 million refund. The bank also has the worst record on loan modifications, which allow homeowners to avoid foreclosure, she said.
"Here is the country's biggest bank, which was bailed out with hardworking taxpayers' money and saved from insolvency less than two years ago, and now it's raking in record profits, paying it's CEO 12 million a year, handing out big bonus, all the while avoiding taxes altogether," Hemenway said. "That's just not fair, and we're going to let our angry voices be heard," she said.
Picketers at the Bank of America branch in Santa Rosa will be armed with signs calling for the bank to pay its fair share, and the bank manager will be presented with a "tax bill," according to Hemenway.?Protesters will also hand out flyers and fact sheets detailing the mechanisms the bank uses, including offshore tax shelters, to avoid corporate taxes, and customers will be encouraged to withdraw their funds and place them in local banks.
