Remember, Remember, the 5th of November

November 5th, 2011 was Bank Transfer Day. This was the target date for concerned activists to move our money out of global banks.
In the weeks leading up to Bank Transfer Day 650,000 people left the big banks to move their accounts to credit unions. They took $4.3 billion dollars out of the global banks and put them into member-owned credit unions.
