Obviously, anyone can close a bank account and switch to a credit union, but I am not sure why Occupy emphasized a "local" credit union on Nation Swap Day. See, here is where my confusion came about. I did a Google search for a credit union in my area and "Tri County Area Federal Credit Union" is the only close one. With "Federal" in the title, I am left wondering if it is considered non-local. Or is it local merely in the sense that it's geographically close? I want to opt out of this shitty system, not accidentally switch to a credit union that is shady. So what sense of the word is meant by local? Is a federal credit union non-local?
