History of Antisemitic Imagery - Money 

A little bit of history...

The medieval and (moreso) Early Modern Financial debt in Europe was created as a way to scapegoat Jewish people for state profit, then once that was done, the stereotype of Jews being untrustworthy greedy people was also set in stone.

Jews were forced into taking up banking as a profession by European rulers so they could then have all their assets stolen by the state as a way of erasing their debts after wars etc. All other jobs were outlawed for Jews and in many cases charging interest was legalized in places where it had been outlawed for centuries specifically for Jewish bankers and nobody else, just so that states could go further into this fake debt pool before screwing over the Jews to bail themselves out. These were areas where in the Christian tradition local priests would often disallow the practice of money lending entirely (interest or not), so they offloaded their dirty work. It was a way for the state to get free revenue and also fuck over a religious minority at the same time. The sin these Jews were accused of? "Usury". Funny how we don't hear that in Christian churches anymore...

Locals who would experience a recession after such debt annulments for the state would then blame the Jews, the Jews were intentionally made out to be sinners (by offloading sinful work onto them) and cheaters (by being framed for causing financial woes through greed when the state set them up for it). This is where the antisemitic association between Jews and money comes from. The state would trick the commoners into hating them to hide the fact that they were fucking everybody over.

asking for money, squat facing eviction 

It is quite likely that Rozbrat will be forced to enter an expensive and complicated legal battle in order to defend itself. That could be costly, and the squat decided to ask for solidarity donations to cover legal costs. Anyone who is able to do so can donate to this account: BIGBPLPW 03 1160 2202 0000 0002 3589 7475 with reference “Donation to save Rozbrat”. Otherwise, share widely.

There are also reports from London groups organizing for action on the day of Uber's IPO (Initial Public Offering: when a Company first sells shares on the stock market), and more cities from around the world are joining.

The demands (as listed by the organizers at Gig Workers Rising include:

+ Living wage: Uber and Lyft must pay drivers a livable hourly rate (after expenses).

+ Transparency: Clear policies on wages, tips, fare breakdowns and deactivations.

+ Benefits: Such as disability, workers comp, retirement, health care, death benefits, and paid time off.

+ Voice at work: A recognized independent worker organization, the freedom to stand together without fear of retaliation and a fair and transparent process for deactivations.
