$4.5 billion, 650 000 people

Bank Transfer Day in the US. In the past few weeks an estimated $4.5 billion in personal accounts has been denied to or moved from the big US banks by 650 000 ordinary people. 

These numbers will only grow as more people begin to realise they have the means to take a stand against The 1% in a way that'll hurt them. This isn't a bank run where people cash-out their savings and dump it into a hole in the ground. This is people moving their money into financial institutions much more accountable to them.

Balloon Juice, UOH, and the CeeBeeCee have more.

Our World. Occupy it.

I love this.
I'm with a credit union in Canada and will push them to everyone I know.
