This is really one mixed bag of protesters. NAPN, as I have previously reported (Seehere), is an ACORN want-to-be. I'm sure most of the anti-bank protesters don't have a clue about this.
Keep in mind that in San Francisco in August, NAPN leader George Goehl told me he wanted to shutdown the financial system in Chicago, so I don't know what he has up his sleeve, but it could get interesting.
The NAPN email notes that on Sunday, Senator Dick Durbin will address ABA attendees and on Monday, Sheila Bair, Chairwoman of the FDIC, will speak.
Also on Monday, NAPN has an event planned in front of the Goldman Sachs headquarters where:
The American People will ask Goldman Sachs to donate its entire projected $23 billion dollar bonus pool to prevent every foreclosure in America in 2010 AND lift one million families out of the poverty and joblessness that was caused by Goldman Sachs' gambling with our economy.
Bottom line the radical left is attempting to co-opt the anti-big banker movement and fold it into an anti-capitalist message. The message should be that Goldman Sachs and the elite bankers are not capitalists, but the behind the scenes controls that direct government's grab of lucre from the people. What is not needed is more regulations, i.e., control points that can be used by Goldman and their types to steal even more.
NAPN is really the left wing version of Goldman, they want to grab the lucre and divvy it up amongst their people. The Goldman-NAPN battle is about controlling government power, when the focus should be on reducing government power, so that these two groups of power hungry pigs have fewer levers from which to force our wealth into their grubby hands.
