Event Description

A Facebook page for the event states that “”together we can ensure that these banking institutions will ALWAYS remember the 5th of November!! If the 99% removes our funds from the major banking institutions on or by this date we will send a clear message and give the 1% a taste of the fear that we experience every day when we aren't able to pay for our rent, food, medication, utilities, student loans, etc."

Time to Bail Out of the Megabanks

by Matt Thuney

Still depositing your hard-earned dollars in a megabank? Paying their gratuitous, outrageous fees for this, that and the sum total (plus interest) of both? Tired of watching your accounts dwindle while your bank’s CEO’s salaries and bonuses rise out of sight? Prefer to place your money and trust in an institution that invests at home instead of overseas?

Just a tad upset that the “too big to fail” banksters got bailed out of their financial Titanics because they steered right into an economic iceberg of their own making, while “too small to count” folks like us keep rowing our dinghies like mad just to fend off the recessionary tide created in their monstrous wake?

Then maybe it’s time to bail out of your megabank and climb aboard a credit union or local financial institution...
