Banks in Burlington
In celebration of International Credit Union Day, we will be picketing one or more corporate banks in Burlington with pro-credit union signs and literature. Our goal will be to educate the public and encourage them to move their money from the Too Big to Fail Corporate banking system to democratic, cooperatively-owned credit unions.
As the most egregious example of Too Big To Fail, we’ll definitely be picketing Citizens Bank, but, if enough people turn out, we might add other banks to the action as well. Keep an eye on this event for further specific updates as to the time frame and potentially organizing shifts of pickets so we can have a presence for the full day! Also, if you are in another part of the state, feel free to create a similar event in your town…
