Message from your host, The International Forum on G.: Student debt now exceeds the amount of all Americans¹ debt for credit card and auto loans, with Wells Fargo Bank (WFB) as one of the largest lenders ($10 billion) for private student loans. Yet students have had little presence and less voice in the peoples¹ mobiliza...tion for the April 24 shareholders meeting in San Francisco for WFB, America¹s biggest bank by market capitalization.
On April 10, 6:00pm at SFSU, HUM 587, everyone is invited to hear why so many people are upset at WFB. Families facing foreclosure, immigrants rights advocates stopping deportations, janitors calling for better working conditions, and others will meet with students to explore how they can collaborate.
Included in the event will be a nonviolent direct action training in
preparation for the Wells Fargo Shareholders Meeting on Tuesday April 24. The training will be lead by David Solnit, from the Occupy SF Direct Action Work Group.
Sponsors include: Occupy Bernal, Occupy SFSU, Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment, Service Employees International Union, Women¹s Action to Gain Economic Security, Global Exchange, Ideological Liberation Working Group, International Forum on Globalization

MoveOn.org Civic Action is hosting the online event registration process but is not responsible for the content or programming of the trainings or for the planning or organization of any specific actions. The 99% Spring is a collaborative effort between many organizations to train over 100,000 Americans in the basics of nonviolent direct action—not an electoral campaign.
