About wibailoutpeople

We are a part of the national Bail Out The People movement which formed in 2008 to fight against the bailouts to the banks. Since then we have been in numerous fights against poverty, racism and war. We demand that the people be bailed out not the banks, a moratorium on all foreclosures, a federal jobs program now and other demands. We have been participating in the Wisconsin people's uprising, Bloombergville in NYC and numerous other people's actions.

Family Lobby Day: Stop the Hate Bill AB190/SB275!
Thursday, February 22, 10am
Wisconsin State Capitol, 2 E Main Street, Madison

Join us to urge Wisconsin legislators to reject AB190/SB275, a hate bill that would allow local employees to investigate immigration status, and mandate authorities turn immigrants over to ICE. The bill would separate Wisconsin families, increase discrimination and racial profiling, harm our economy, and make everyone less safe.

Únase a nosotros para exigir a los legisladores de Wisconsin a rechazar AB190 / SB275, una ley de odio que permitiría a los empleados públicos a averiguar el estatus migratorio, y obligaría las autoridades a entregar a los inmigrantes a ICE.

About the Film: The story of rita bo brown, a working-class butch lesbian from rural Oregon. She was an anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist, ex-prisoner and a member of the militant, underground George Jackson Brigade, active in the 1970s in the Pacific Northwest.

She became known as “The Gentleman Bank Robber” in the 1970s for combining her butch style of dress with a polite demeanor while demanding funds from bank tellers. The film moves between everyday moments with bo in and around her current home in Oakland, California, and retelling the events of bo’s extraordinary life through interviews with bo and her collaborators, archival materials, and rare social movement ephemera.

The Gentleman Bank Robber weaves together personal and political perspectives on 20th century social movement histories, including queer liberation in the 1960s; militant, underground activity with the George Jackson Brigade in the 1970s, a revolutionary prison abolitionist group; political prisoner support work in the 1980s, and prison activist work into the present day. bo brown is a model for how to lead a life of committed activism while maintaining a sense of humor and humanity.

Director Julie Perini is an experimental and documentary videos and film maker from Portland, Oregon.
