Make Wall Street Pay

Led by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, union members and activists from National People’s Action (NPA), NAACP, MoveOn.org and others rallied near City Hall during the Thursday afternoon rush hour urging Congress and the president to be tougher on the banks as Congress decides on a financial overhaul bill.

A crowd of an estimated 7,500 workers and union leaders, angry over lost jobs, the taxpayer-funded bailout of financial institutions and questionable practices by big banks, marched down Broadway toward the city's financial district.
