Here's my proposition for official demand and rallying cry:
bankrupt the banks
bail out the people
It clearly state who we think is the problem, I can be absorbed in a 1/2 sec tv cut, it offers a solution that is supported by prominent economist (Krugman, Sachs, Johnson), it is a solution which cleanly contrast the moral choice at hand. It doesn't require in-depth knowledge knowledge of economics or politics to intuit why it is an effective solution. And it is topical, since the EU about to decide how to deal with Greece's debt.
And we can refer people to Simon Johnson (of IMF)'s article on The Atlantic for the long-form version of that demand.
And it's going to be really fun to sing it during the marches. :)
