Nevada County UnCut: A progressive response to economic shock therapy

Around the country, cutbacks are being proposed and pushed through with great speed.

Progressive groups, inspired by recent events in Egypt and Wisconsin, are rising to the occasion and calling for a sane, reasoned, and equitable approach to the crisis at hand.

A group in Nevada City demonstrated Saturday at Bank of America in downtown Nevada City.

Other groups around the United States are engaging in similar actions that demonstrate the will of the people to protect essential programs and services from cutbacks and to demand that such services be paid for by the banks and other mega-corporations that currently dodge taxes and dominate economic policy.

A newly-emerging organization called US Uncut, modeled on UK Uncut, is planning autonomous but coordinated actions in over 30 locations nationwide. (See http://www.usuncut.org)
