WEAP Executive Director Ethel Long-Scott set the tone with a passionate speech on the meaning of the austerity being preached by both major political parties.

She said the smart microchips of the electronic revolution have produced "disaster capitalism," where "the class that owns the means of production is profiting by forcing the human workers they no longer need out of the economic system."
"They are forcing them out by squeezing them," she said, "cutting wages, cutting pensions, health care and other benefits, taking as much money as possible out of public services - education, health clinics, transportation, public workers, municipal services of all kinds, sequesters."
Disaster capitalism, she said, is "...deliberately designed to make the rich richer and workers poorer . . . The global super rich, billionaires and millionaires, are working hard to convince the American people that big bad unions and workers struggling to do right by their families are to blame for the death of cities like Detroit."
