Our famously free press refuses to cover nurses demanding a transaction tax on the banksters
Yves writes, with what must be irony:
I find it intriguing that the fact that nurses have stages protests against Wall Street has gotten pretty much no coverage in the mainstream media. I checked nurses + protest on Google News, and the only note take of their September 1 protest was a story in the Boston Herald [#47] and MarketWatch (but the latter merely published their press releases).
Nurses have the potential to become an effective and visible source of pressure, since they are disciplined, organized, and have a good public image and are a large group. But they need more turnout and more media interest in order to reverse the perception that nothing can be done about the banksters.
All true. Alas, I missed it; I do need to focus more on non-violence
