Bank Transfer Day is a boycott initiative calling for voluntary switch from commercial banks to non-profit credit unions on November 5, 2011. As of October 15, 2011, a Facebook page devoted to the effort has drawn more than 38,000 supporters. Debit card fees of $5 a month from Bank of America are among steps leading to the Bank Transfer Day protest with a Nov. 5 deadline.

Together we can ensure that these banking institutions will ALWAYS remember the 5th of November!! If the 99% removes our funds from the major banking institutions to non-profit credit unions on or by this date, we will send a clear message to the 1% that conscious consumers won't support companies with unethical business practices.

• Open an account with the one that best suits your needs
• Cancel all automatic withdrawals & deposits
• Transfer your funds to the new account

Is false imprisonment illegal? Not when the banks do it.

Also, rather than allow two of their customers to close their accounts, Bank of America told them that “you can not be a protester and a customer at the same time.” The bank manager threatened to lock the doors and call the police to have their own customers arrested. Source


  1. Just open a new account at a community bank or credit union by depositing a check from your old active account...but just leave a $1 balance in your old account - no need to close it or face the bank's employees at all. Then if you just wanted to make a protest statement on Nov 5, go back in and close your $1 account. If they charge you, you'll have a negative balance in an old account you don't use anymore. But banks are evil and they might try to send a collection agency after you for the negative balance that they themselves created.

  2. Banks Raise Fees on Same People Who Bailed Out Their Asses
