JOIN ACT UP's 25th Anniversary Direct Action
 A massive demonstration and march on Wall St.

April 25, 2012
@ 11 am
Starts at City Hall (Broadway & Murray Street)
Ends at Wall Street

ACT UP is calling for a small tax (0.05% or less) on Wall Street transactions and speculative trades in order to raise the money needed to end the global AIDS epidemic and provide universal healthcare in the US.

How can a Financial Speculation Tax
help end AIDS?
-       THE SCIENCE: The scientific community and AIDS activists agree: we now know how to break the back of the epidemic: new evidence shows early HIV treatment can reduce sexual transmission of the virus by 96%.

-       THE REALITY: However, while HIV treatment is needed to save lives, prevent illness, and reduce new HIV cases, there is a huge TREATMENT GAP and WAITING LISTS are growing in the U.S. and abroad.

-       DOMESTICALLY: In the US, 3,840 people who qualify for federal assistance, known as ADAP, to pay for HIV treatment are still on waiting lists. In addition to HIV treatment, people living with HIV and vulnerable communities in the U.S. need appropriate support and social services. Due to budget cuts, these essential services have been rolled back. Funding from the tax could also help pay for universal healthcare in the US.

-       GLOBALLY: Worldwide, only 44% of people in clinical need of HIV treatment have access, leaving more than 8 million without. Revenue from the FST could bail out the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria, which cancelled its last round of grants to poor countries due to lack of resources. Funding the Fund can help to make good on the global agreement––also signed by the U.S.—to reach 15 million people with treatment by 2015, up from 6.6 million now. It will take around $22 billion a year between now and 2015 to finance the global HIV fight to save millions of lives and stop the HIV/AIDS epidemic in its tracks.

-        WHAT'S AT STAKE: HIV/AIDS has already claimed over 30 million lives worldwide. ACT UP is calling for an FST to help raise the money needed to close the gap in access to life-saving HIV treatment, and to END THE AIDS CRISIS.

ACT UP New York is a diverse non-partisan group of individuals united in anger
and committed to direct action to end the AIDS crisis.
We advise, inform, ACT UP & occupy!
