Text of the message sent to Vikram Pandit by the Alternative Banking Group, in cooperation with the PR Working Group:
Dear Mr. Pandit,
Last October, in an interview with Fortune Magazine, you extended an invitation to Occupy Wall Street for a face-to-face meeting. The Alternative Banking Group, an official working group of Occupy Wall Street, hereby accepts.
As CEO of Citigroup, you recently announced “a new Citi.” You said that you are now “working hard to create a culture of responsible finance.” Our mission as the Alternative Banking Group is exactly the same. We look forward to a fruitful dialogue.
Since this conversation is of importance to the general public, we will have a small camera crew with us to document it. The video will be shared on the website occupy.com, an emerging media platform for the Occupy movement.
Please respond to this email at your earliest convenience to schedule a time and place.
The Alternative Banking Group
Occupy Wall Street
We hope that Pandit will honor his offer. If you have any questions that you would like the Alternative Banking Group to ask on your behalf, please suggest them in the comments section. Thanks!
