Bring Our Money Home!
(what's left of it)
From the organizers of Occupy Portland:
Opening a new account at the local credit union or community owned bank (such as Albina Community Bank in Portland). Then you can start moving your money when you want.
Saturday, November 5:
9:30 AM - Gather at Terry Shrunk Plaza (between 3rd & 4th Avenues, Jefferson and Madison Streets; directly east of Portland City Hall).
10:00 AM - Rally and actions at Portland’s big banks. Draw attention to the financial crimes committed by the Wall Street banks. March to local branches of financial institutions.
10:30 AM - Account Opening Action at credit unions and community banks open on Saturday for this purpose.
Some banks and credit unions spend a lot of time trying to “look local,” but as a movement we need to cut through the marketing campaigns and get the facts. The Oregon Banks Local campaign has researched every bank and credit union doing business in the state to objectively measure which institutions are truly local and is working together with Occupy Portland to celebrate Bank Transfer Day in style.
