Just closed my account with a TARP recipient and doing business with a local one. Will other OWS supporters do so?

According to one site on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=281139538577206

"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.

• Research your local credit union options • Open an account with the one that best suits your needs • Cancel all automatic withdrawals & deposits • Transfer your funds to the new account • Follow your bank's procedures to close your account before 11/05

This is an awesome idea. Boycotts are nonviolent and effective ways to create change.
