Organized as part of Take Back Chicago Monday, a group of 40 activists dressed as Robin Hoods kayaked the Chicago River toward a Mortgage Bankers Association meeting to deliver a message: it’s time for the big banks to pay Americans back for the losses they have suffered through lost homes, lost revenue, and lost jobs.
Additionally, the group dropped a banner on the Michigan Bridge that read: “Wall Street: Steals from the 99%. Gives to the Rich. Let’s take it back!”
The Robin Hood action was organized by National People’s Action, a member of Take Back Chicago. National People’s Action is also a member of The New Bottom Line campaign, a nationwide coalition of 1,000 faith-based and community organizations that seeks to hold Wall Street accountable.
