This is a collective refusal to pay bills while we are in a life-or-death crisis. In this sense, our action is our demand.
We have specific demands for government and lawmakers:
- Legal protection against any retaliations for nonpayment of bills during the crisis. National moratoriums on evictions, foreclosures, shutoffs, and defaults to last one year beyond the end of the crisis!
- Fully cancel all rent and bill payments for the duration of the crisis. No one should owe any more at the end of this crisis than they did at the beginning.
- Bailout plans that get individuals back on their feet through large scale loan forgiveness and basic income.
