Philadelphia, PA, Sat 26th Feb 2011
At approximately Noon, we are planning to protest outside of Comcast’s Headquarters in resistance to their dodging taxes and using NBC to spout propaganda in favor of cuts to public services.
For locating its Headquarters in Center City, Comcast was given 42.75 million dollars from the State, and pays no taxes for the first 10 years. The construction firm that built the Headquarters, Liberty Property Trust, received 30 million dollars from the State. These subsidies and tax cuts could save the AdultBasic program that Governor Corbett has gutted, which provided over 45,000 low-income Pennsylvanians with health insurance.
Other details on Comcast’s malfeasance are forthcoming.
