Following another weekend of busted glass at one Broadway bank, we’re hoping the hammer-carrying, rock-chucking, spark plug-tossing vandals of Capitol Hill consider checking out a different way to protest the global banking system. On Saturday at your friendly neighborhood Broadway Bank of America branch, those fun-loving kids of #MicCheckWallSt are up to some shard-less shenanigans to encourage locals to “foreclose” their BofA accounts and move their money “to a credit union or community bank.” Below are the details on the planned Do Not Pass Go protest.
The big banks have been playing monopoly with our money & our homes.
On Saturday April 14th, just in time for tax day, let’s return the favor…
Monopolize the Bank of America on Capitol Hill all day by turning the sidewalk into a giant Monopoly board!
While drawing attention to BoA’s practices we want to also encourage their customers to foreclose on their accounts & take their money to a credit union or community bank. We’ll have monopoly money and “foreclosure” notices on hand to give out with some helpful facts about BoA and more information about doing just that.
Let’s dress up and play bank!
Like costumes?!?! Here are some ideas! Come dressed as:
- A foreclosed home
- A slum hotel
- Your favourite game piece
- Rich “Uncle” Pennybags
- A keystone cop
- Giant dice
- A community chest
- A chance card
- Anything else you can think of!
Don’t like costumes? Just come as yourself! Show your support and help us shut them down.
We last saw #MicCheckWallSt in action on Capitol Hill in this Money Doesn’t Talk demonstration in February.
