News From Underground:
The Crushing Burden of Debt
Tuesday, Sept. 4
7:00 pm
McNally Jackson Bookstore, 52 Prince St. (b/t Mulberry & Lafayette), NYC

Credit was supposed to help us realize our dreams. Instead, predatory lenders are rapidly closing off the opportunities that a democracy ought to nurture. Seventy-six percent of Americans are serious debtors. At least 1 in 7 is already being pursued by debt collectors. U.S. student debt is more than $1 trillion, median household debt has risen to $75,600 and much of it can never be repaid in our lifetimes. Panel members will discuss the consequences, and the possibilities for debt resistance.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
