Occupy Philly Wants Banks to Remember, Remember the Fifth of November

Protesters urge people to pull funds from bank accounts

A  movement started by a concerned woman in Los Angeles has protesters across the country—and all over the internet—organizing a massive demonstration by pledging to withdraw funds from back accounts on November 5th. Add this to the latest wave of protests and civil stand-offs carried out by consumers unhappy with the wealth distribution in America. The Scoop may not be participating in the protest, but he is relieved that people are ditching their Visa check cards instead of blowing up a house of Parliament. [Philadelphia Weekly]
