Rejected petition The bankers should pay for the crisis they created

More details

The government is currently slashing public services, jobs, and working class living standards, in the name of paying off the national debt. However, this debt exists in large measure due to the bailout of the bankers, following the financial crisis they themselves triggered. We demand that the government confiscate all the bailout money and all banking sector profits, and redistribute them in a way that will benefit the working class.
