People's Bailout Telethon Party – Philadelphia Thursday 7:00pm Friends
Center, 15th & Cherry Sts., Philadelphia. On November 15th, Strike
Debt is holding a telethon & variety show, featuring some remarkable
artists, including Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel, Lee Ranaldo of
Sonic Youth, Guy Picciotto of Fugazi, Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the
Radio, plus some special surprise guests. Most of all, it features,
you, the people. Occupy Philly will be sponsoring a livestream viewing
party of the Strike Debt telethon, to launch The Rolling Jubilee, a
campaign that buys debt for pennies on the dollar and does away with
it. Instead of collecting the debt, we will abolish it and help free
the debtors!
This event will support the Rolling Jubilee, an ingenious way to buy
debt for pennies on the dollar, and abolish it. The Rolling Jubilee is
designed to scale up, but it need donations to do so. Each dollar of
contributions goes a long way -- $5 can abolish $100 of debt. For
$50,000, we can eliminate around a million dollars of debt. Think of
that: Together we abolish $1 million of debt, and that’s just the
start. The event will be streamed live at

Prison Divestment Campaign Comes to Philly: Dump the Prison Stock,
Invest in Humanity. Join Amanda Garcés of the National Prison
Divestment Campaign for a conversation at Arch Street Methodist on
Thursday November 15th @ 7:30 PM and learn how to get involved in
ending the private prison and immigrant detention center industry.
This talk will also feature the launch of the "MISSING" project, a
collaboration between Decarcerate PA and the National Prison
Divestment Campaign. “MISSING” is a visibility project which utilizes
public art by creating life size silhouettes to be placed on walls,
used as signs, props, etc. to raise awareness of those who have been
stolen from our communities by the criminal justice system. The
National Prison Divestment Campaign is a growing national movement
that is pressuring financial institutions, large companies,
municipalities and pension funds to divest from the private prison
industry. Come out and learn how you can get involved. For more

Decarcerate PA to put Governor Corbett & Department of Corrections
Secretary Wetzel on trial for crimes against Pennsylvanians. 15th &
JFK Blvd (the Municipal Services Building plaza). We charge Governor
Corbett with the misuse of funds for taking money from our schools and
putting it into the prison system. We charge Governor Corbett with
continuing policies that lock up our families, friends and neighbors,
destroy our communities and fail to make any of us safer. We charge
Secretary Wetzel with human rights abuses for the inhumane conditions
in Pennsylvania's prisons. We demand Governor Corbett cancel all
prison construction, support smart legislative reform to bring our
neighbors home and keep them home, and invest in education, social
services and health care to build safer, stronger communities! learn
