TO BE DISTRIBUTED ON WALL STREET
BY AARON BURR SOCIETY FOR ONE HOUR ON
APRIL 1, 2009, 12 NOON TO 1 PM
WHAT: The Aaron Burr Society will distribute Free Money to the public for one
hour during an April Fool’s Day parade on Wall Street in New York City. 100 actual
One-Dollar Bills will be distributed to the public including workers, tourists, panhandlers
and members of the financial community. Each dollar will be stamped with the words
Free Money on the front and Slave of Wall Street on the back.
WHEN: Wednesday, April 1, 2009, from 12 noon to 1 p.m.
WHERE: The actual currency will be distributed between the New York Stock Exchange,
at the corner of Wall Street and Nassau/Broad Streets, and the Federal Reserve Bank
located at 33 Liberty Street, between Nassau and William Streets, in the heart of the
New York’s Financial District.
The event, entitled Free Money, will start at 12 noon on the steps of Federal Hall,
located across the street from the New York Stock Exchange. The parade will walk up
Nassau Street to Liberty Street and proceed to the entrance of the Federal Reserve
Bank, and then return to Nassau on the way back to the New York Stock Exchange
and end on the steps of Federal Hall.
WHO: The Aaron Burr Society is a group of radicals and free thinkers who are dedicated to
refining and expanding the concepts of the Enlightenment. “Our current economic
crisis was a planned bank robbery. When will someone go to jail?”
The dichotomy between Free Money and a Slave of Wall Street is at the heart of the American Dream. It represents the historic battle between tyranny and representative democracy that goes back to the founding of the Republic.
“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”
Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt all fought the banking institutions and the corporations that grew up around them. Today President Obama faces similar challenges.
About the Aaron Burr Society
In these troubled financial times, when DEREGULATION and FRAUD lead to another international banking collapse (1929, 1890s) the Aaron Burr Society is dedicated to non-violent resistance of the banks, corporations and the politicians who have stolen our money and are now using our tax dollars for bailouts. The Society takes metaphorical inspiration from the man who killed the first Secretary of the Treasury and the founder of the first National Bank who was also a founding member of Wall Street, Alexander Hamilton.
Free Money combines the physical distribution of money with the distribution information and video via the Internet. The Aaron Burr Society is posting a series of videos on YouTube and will continue the postings leading up to and after the April Fools Day Parade. The initial YouTube video posting is titled Wall Street Shuffle They Win, You Lose.
