Bank Transfer Day is a movement for people to close big bank accounts by November 5, 2011.
Bank Transfer Day organizers and supporters believe that if the “99%” removes their funds from major banking institutions and deposits them into non-profit credit unions by November 5th, then a clear message will be sent to the “1%” that conscious consumers won’t support companies with unethical business practices.
Check out the Bank Transfer Day Facebook Page to learn more about this movement.
Bank Transfer Day wants you to close your big bank account on or before November 5, 2011, and to deposit your money in your local credit union.
Their mission is to re-invest in local communities through the transfer of funds from “big banks” to credit unions.
What do you think? Will closing your bank account stick it to the 1%’ers?
What about the 99% members that work for big banks, won’t they be in danger of losing their jobs if the Bank Transfer Day movement works?
