Strike Debt Bay Area

As individuals, families, and communities, most of us are drowning in debt. Debt keeps us isolated, ashamed, and afraid. We are not a loan.

“Just as bosses are dependent on workers, so are lenders dependent on borrowers. If workers walk out, the enterprise stops. If borrowers refuse to pay their debts, the lenders could be in real trouble. Each side depends on the other. The millions of underwater mortgage holders, of student debtors and credit card holders, need the bank loans – but so do the banks need those borrowers, and they especially need them to cooperate by paying their monthly charges. Otherwise, the capital that the banks list on their books begins to drain away.” ~Francis Fox Piven

Imagine there’s no debt

Imagine there’s no interest
If you run short of cash
You borrow money, pay it back,
No fear your life will crash
Imagine all the people sharing our wealth

Imagine no tuition
We’d all be free to learn
No debt at graduation
We’d live on what we earn
Imagine all the people studying with joy

You-you may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
The banksters and the 1%
Will soon be on the run

Imagine public transit,
Parks and libraries,
With public banks investing
In our communities
Imagine all the people having all we need

Imagine single payer
Whenever we get ill
We’d focus on healing
Not worry about bills
Imagine all the people living in good health

You-you may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
We are the 99%
We know what can be done

Imagine for poor people,
And for poor countries too
When debt has been abolished
What things we all will do.
Imagine all the people sharing all the world

You-you may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
We are the 99%
We know what will be done
Thank you Margaret!
