Massive BAIN SUPERVILLAIN to Congratulate Romney on Day of Acceptance Speech / Thurs 12:30pm / 57th & Madison

Posted August 30th, 2012 by facebook_tristan.lear • permalink

On Thursday August 30, former Bain Capital CEO Mitt Romney will be officially annointed as a candidate for President of the United States. On such a special day we felt it was important that New York City gives him the congratulations he deserves.

A massive, 15-foot-tall supervillain called BAIN (also the namesake of Batman’s most recent nemesis) will deliver a press conference on the steps of Bain Capital HQ on Madison Avenue to honor the achievements of his longtime ‘partner in crime’ Willard Mitt Romney.

“I have slashed incomes, smashed jobs, and torn working families to pieces,” says Bain gleefully. “If Romney wins the election, it will be Dark Night indeed.”

A hundred workers will be there to challenge Bain, many sharing real life stories about their nightmarish experiences working for Bain Capital-owned businesses. You are invited to come and help challenge this sinister plan to take over our Democracy.

WHO: The corporate monster known as Bain, confronted by 100 workers, and you!

WHAT: A giant 13″ monster will deliver a speech in front of Bain Capital accompanied by his corporate henchmen.

WHEN: 12:30-1:30pm (Lunch break!)

WHERE: Bain Capital Headquarters 590 Madison (57th and Madison).

**PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY**

This event is supported by United New York

Shut down Bain Capital!

Posted July 22nd, 2012 by Shut Down Bain Capital! • permalink

Mitt Romney co-founded Bain Capital. The corporation took part in many “hostile takeovers,” a practice that involves buying a company in order to simply lay off the workers, close the company and sell it for spare parts.

Occupy Tampa and the Tampa Bay Regional General Assembly passed through consensus a resolution to send a national call to action, on the day Mitt Romney accepts the nomination, to shut down Bain Capital.
