November Fifth Is Bank Transfer Day

Remember, remember, the fifth of November, because that’s when “Bank Transfer Day” is happening. By that date, all participants will have closed their big retail bank accounts and put their money in a local non-profit credit union or local or regional community bank.

“If the 99% removes our funds from the major banking institutions to non-profit credit unions on or by this date,” says the Facebook event page, “we will send a clear message to the 1% that conscious consumers won’t support companies with unethical business practices.”
