"End the Fed!" Protest Set for Saturday
Admittedly, the workings of globalization, the Federal Reserve and international economics aren't as easy to grasp as the concept of a same-sex marriage, but for the second week in a row, there will be a protest in St. Louis.
The latest uproar goes after the Federal Reserve Bank, and Saturday is being called "End the Fed Day." The protest will take place at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, just east of Kiener Plaza on Broadway and will proceed to the Federal Reserve Building. The bank is one of only twelve in the country that comprise our national central bank.
Invitees are encouraged to wear "clever costumes (of a non-threatening and totally non-violent nature.)" Not too sure what kind of costume one would wear to a protest against the Fed; because Ben Bernanke, if a little frazzled, looks cuddly most of the time. And Alan Greenspan, the former longtime Fed chair, well, he's not really frightening either.
According to the note sent this weekend, St. Louis is one of 39 U.S. cities taking part. An expected 50-100 people will be in attendance for the noon protest.
