"We are asking everyone to imagine what it would mean if through protests and media and education we could break up one of the largest financial institutions in the country.

Bank of America is almost totally bankrupt and is probably going to need a bailout sometime in the next year. It is already dependent on taxpayer money. This time around, there’s still time to prevent another bailout. The only way to prevent this from happening is through starting a massive public campaign to create a political climate in which an educated and empowered populace recognizes that this bank has already failed and must be broken apart. If we can pull this off, it would send a signal to the financial industry that it has to start being accountable to the public. From there, we would have a chance to change the whole system."

If we can convince the bought and paid for politicians .I think it would take massive protest for anyone in DC to evan give lip service to that though.They file bankruptcy reorganize and are back again as bank of whatever.Only way to stop them is total system change.
