Detroit Demonstration Against the Jones Day Looters: As They Wine and Dine at the DIA
The Jones Day law firm which took $53 million from the people of Detroit to manipulate the phony "bankruptcy" will be hosting judges, lawyers, bankers and billionaires at a gala event.
They are celebrating the opening of their Detroit office and the "grand theft bargain" that stole at least $7 billion from the people of the City of Detroit through pension and healthcare cuts, the privatization of public assets and the denial of democratic rights. Ex-emergency manager Kevyn Orr, Judges Rhodes and Rosen, who engineered the Grand Theft Bargain, will be honored by the thieves.
Jones Day and their partner Kevyn Orr gave away the Detroit Water & Sewerage Department (DWSD) and began the massive water shutoffs that continue to this day. They also ceded City control over Belle Isle and the DIA to the State and private interests.
During this whole process they made sure that their banking clients were not held responsible for the destruction caused by the financial institutions and multi-national corporations through predatory lending, job losses and the forced removals of African Americans, workers and the poor.They fought to make sure that the looters were paid tens of millions in termination fees on interest rate swindles.
Join us in denouncing these Wall Street criminals as they add insult to injury. Let them know they are not welcome in our city.
