Moral Outrage
Whew! God help us!

Add your voice through Move Your Money Pledge

The big Wall Street banks crashed our economy, refused to clean up the mess, and still haven’t been held accountable.

Now the Occupy movement has inspired people everywhere to take action in protest and a lot of us have realized there’s something we can do to fight back: close our accounts and move our money out of the big Wall Street banks and into community banks and credit unions.

This week, in the lead-up to the November 5 Make Wall Street Pay day of action targeting the giant banks, we’ve set up a new “Move Your Money Pledge.” Our goal is to get as many people as possible pledging to close their accounts with the big banks.

Are you ready to show the Wall Street banks that we’re going to hold them accountable ourselves? If you’re ready to stop banking with Wall Street—or if you already have—click here to sign the Move Your Money pledge. By signing the pledge you’ll be able to turn your private choice as a bank customer into a powerful public display of outrage and protest by joining tens of thousands of others who are ready to switch banks and close accounts.

If we can get a huge number of accounts closed at the major banks we’ll certainly impact their bottom line, but we’ll also do something even more powerful—we’ll send them a very clear message that the public’s outrage is only growing stronger and that we’re not going to let them off the hook for the damage they’ve done to our economy.

Can you sign the pledge and close an account?
Yes, I’ll sign the pledge.

[MoveOn]

  1. We must unite and refuse to do business with corporate entities that have bribed, coerced, and manipulated our elected representatives. This democratic republic has been taken over by corporate fascists that control our media and through social engineering have tried to turn us against each other to shift the attention from them. Remove your money and put it into a local credit union or bank. Why would anyone do business with a group of bank so big that this monstrosity has the potential to bring down an entire nation. They have created fraudulent financial instruments credit default swaps mortgage backed securities the list goes on and on, dump them fight back.

  2. MSNBC reports:
    An estimated 650,000 consumers have transferred $4.5 billion from banks to credit unions since the end of September.

    The big banks are keeping mum about whether customers are switching to non-profit credit unions this weekend as part of the Facebook-propelled “Bank Transfer Day” protest.

    In Los Angeles, organizers predicted that thousands would move their accounts from the big commercial banks, but it was unclear how many actually did.

    Doug Allen moved the bulk of his and his wife’s savings to Partners Credit Union in Burbank, which has added some 600 new accounts recently and took the unusual step of opening its doors on a Saturday.

    “I’ve meaning to do it for awhile, so when I saw this event today, I thought, ‘That’s the perfect reason to finally do it,'” Allen said.
