Sign petition: People versus Banks!

As citizens concerned about the economic crisis and austerity measures, we urge you to fundamentally change the proposed Greek rescue package. The bailout deal must be rewritten to ensure that public money serves the public interest and doesn’t reward the banks and speculators which have helped caused the crisis.
The outrageous Greece bailout plan, written by bankers, floods banks and speculators with free taxpayer money and leaves Greece high and dry. Our finance ministers meet in 3 days, let’s send them a massive call to go back to the drawing board, and come back with a plan that bails out Greece, not the banks:

Unbelievable, they’re doing it again. Our governments are giving even more free taxpayer money to banks!

Absolutely, we need to bailout Greece to save Greece, save Europe, and save the Euro. But the current bailout makes us the taxpayers pay back banks for 90% of their foolish investments. Greek people don’t get a cent of investment, and we give a ton of money to rich bankers. And even worse – 30% of our money will go to speculators who will actually make a massive profit from gambling on a bailout!

How on earth did our governments write a bailout plan that floods banks and speculators with our money and leaves Greece with nothing? The answer — they actually asked bankers to write the agreement. Our finance ministers are meeting in 3 days to decide on this plan.
