Update a the Global Bank Users Strike, a global campaign against commercial banking and consumer debt. Over 200 people worldwide have signed up to take part in coordinated withdrawals from the commercial banking and debt resistance.

Global Bank Users Strike Update

This September Catalonian anti-banking activists called for a global bank users strike in response to the global economic crisis.

The plan is to develop a worldwide, coordinated effort to organize withdrawals from the commercial banking system and debt non-repayment. People can ‘pre-register’ to participate; when enough people are signed-up in a given city or region, they can call a day to withdrawal money from commercial banks and place it in non-capitalist financial institutions and begin debt nonpayment.

Since the initial call, over 200 people around the world have signed up!

People can participate as much or as little as they like; people already living without the banking system or resisting debt payment can coordinate with others and give them advice. The idea is to begin—in a public and collective way—popular resistance to the banking system that can no long be trusted with out paychecks and savings.

The North American Bank Strike campaign is looking for people to help organize this campaign. There are lots of ways to help out...

What we need:
Participants: Join the strike and close your commercial bank account.
