Occupy Seattle Declares ‘Break Up With Your Bank Day’ a Huge Success!
BECU, Seattle, was still counting the new accounts but told the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) that 659 people opened accounts Saturday in just one branch. The credit union has 45 branches. The new accounts broke all the credit union’s records for opening new accounts on a single day. And that’s just one credit union of the many in Washington.
Through this action we continue to hold the big banks accountable for foreclosing on millions of families, cutting back on small business loans that create jobs, breaking FEC rules, and avoiding their fair share of taxes through offshore accounts and loopholes.
Feel free to keep telling the big banks at any time “it’s not me, it’s you”.
