"It's the job of the public to keep the pressure on the president and other politicians to make sure justice is served. ... More than 1,000 big bankers went to jail after the savings and loan scandal."

The film, "Inside Job," which investigated the causes of the U.S. and global economic meltdown. won the Academy Award for best documentary film in 2011. Upon accepting his Oscar at the awards ceremony, the film's director, Charles Ferguson, decried the fact that three years after the financial crisis caused by financial fraud, not a single financial executive had gone to jail. Nearly a year later, and five months after the birth of the Occupy Wall Street movement, President Barack Obama announced in his January State of the Union address that he was appointing New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman as one of five co-chairs of a new Justice Department task force to investigate mortgage fraud by big banks and financial institutions that played a central role in the economic collapse.  Story continues

The Sierra campaign has succeeded in stopping the construction of 160 proposed coal-fired power plants and is now targeting existing coal-fired plants for closure.  Story continues

Last year’s coordinated assault on the right of public employees to collectively bargain in states like Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan and others was met with protests, referendums and recall elections sponsored by unions and their allies. Wisconsin, ground zero for resistance to anti-labor legislation, is gearing up for a historic recall election against the state’s Republican Gov. Scott Walker this spring. Ohio voters overwhelmingly rejected GOP-sponsored anti-union laws in a referendum held in November.  Story continues
