NEW YORK, NY, July 08, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Monetary Reform activist Harrison "Tesoura" Schultz PhD., will give away a free dime-bag of cannabis and free pizza on July 15 at 12:00 PM to the first one-hundred people who call their congress representatives on livestream in front of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to demand that their representatives re-sponsor the National Emergency Employment Defense (NEED) Act.
The NEED Act is a bill to create a full employment economy as a matter of national economic defense; to provide for public investment in capital infrastructure; to provide for reducing the cost of public investment; to retire public debt; to stabilize the Social Security retirement system; to restore the authority of Congress to create and regulate money, modernize and provide stability for the monetary system of the United States; and for other public purposes.
The NEED Act was last introduced in the 112th Congress as H.R. 2990 by then Representative Dennis Kucinich (D, OH) and the late John Conyers (D, MI).
Sue Peters, Green Party New York notes, "Legislation was written, vetted and introduced to Congress in 2011, to replace the speculative Federal Reserve System with a reliable, stable-value monetary system. The NEED Act was shelved by the Banking Committee at that time and remains at the ready. Now is the time to make this important change." Unlike the Federal Reserve System, dealing with a pandemic would not automatically become a financial crisis. Instead we would have a government able to respond effectively and swiftly in a crisis with the power to fully fund a public healthcare system.
The Federal Reserve Bank of New York is at 33 Liberty St, New York, NY 10045.
The Free Weed at the Fed action is sponsored by Occupy The NEED Act and 420 Fight Club.
