Activists Demand Audit of Federal Reserve, Call for Transparency of Government
Press release from the NYC Campaign for Liberty and the Manhattan Libertarian Party:
New York liberty activists, comprised of members of Restore the Republic, NYC Campaign for Liberty, and the Manhattan Libertarian Party will gather at 33 Liberty Street Saturday, April 25, 2009, at 11 a.m. to demand a full and independent audit of the Federal Reserve. Demonstrators will gather at the Federal Reserve Bank in New York City and will march to City Hall Park for a rally at 2 p.m., where Peter Schiff, President of Euro Pacific Capital and author of Crash Proof, will address the crowd.
The New York City protest of the Federal Reserve Act is part of a nationally coordinated action organized by members of Restore the Republic, the grassroots freedom movement founded in 2007 by filmmaker Aaron Russo. Inspired by Rep. Ron Paul’s Federal Reserve Transparency Act H.R.1207, the rally will highlight the lack of accountability in the Federal Reserve System, and protesters will call for President Obama to honor his campaign pledge for increased government transparency.
“Regular independent audits are standard practice for any legitimate financial institution, so we believe our demands will receive strong mainstream support,” said Isaiah Matos, regional coordinator of the Campaign for Liberty. “Americans need to know what is really happening to their money, and we know an audit will expose the true and fraudulent nature of the Federal Reserve.”
