Greetings to the people of the world, We are Anonymous
In this day, as we speak, there is a revolution brewing. People all over the world have woken up, people all over the world want to take back control of their money and their lives. They are tired of being fed lies and they have called for everyone around the world to join them in occupying the world. Along with the Occupy movement, we, Anonymous have started #OpCashBack, an op fully dedicated to moving your money from big time banks to local credit unions. This is an operation that can be done by everyone, not just fellow anons. Help us restore the power to the people and rid the big banks of their power over us and politicians. As the saying goes “money is the root of all evil” so let us take the money away from the evil. You can start right now, tomorrow or next week, find a local credit union, speak to them about rates and policies, go to your bank, withdraw your money from them and move it to your new Credit Union. Thus, taking away the power that big banks have.

Proposal to your assembly:
The proposal is to start an international campaign for everybody to take their money out of the commercials banks and pass it to ethic banks (bank account), credit unions (savings), or invest it in ethic or alternative economy, you can also build your own financial institution
So this action will have two fronts: take the money out from the banksters elites, and also put more money available for sustainable projects who will contribute to everybody and help to heal the world.
People can do it without changing anything on the way they use their money (debt cards, etc) and they will have a bank account that will not contribute to war and exploitation.
What is the plan:
- A big campaign of communication to promote this action during the next twenty days in which we need the collaboration of the largest number of assemblies to approve the call and media to spread the informations. So the first step will be to present this proposal to your assembly and create a working group charged to promote the action.
- Until the 5th. of November we will spread a lot of texts and videos showing what the traditional banks are doing with our money but also promoting the financial alternatives and the projects they finance. We invite all the assemblies to open the debate locally, share this materials and create new ones adapted to their local situations. So we welcome the video-makers, designers and all the people who can bring informations on this topic.
- The 5th. of November will be the great day where we invite everybody to transfer his money from his bank to an ethic one or credit union, following this simple steps:
• Research your local credit unions or ethic banks options (you have until the 5th. of November and we will share a maximum informations and contacts to help you)
• Open an account with the one that best suits your needs (before the 5th. of November because it will be a Saturday and some of them will be closed)
• Cancel all automatic withdrawals & deposits (Before the 5th. of November for more security)
• Transfer your funds to the new account (during the 5th. of November if it’s possible the morning when they are all open)
• Follow your bank’s procedures to close your account before the 5th. of November.
Find a credit union (will be updated) :
It’s the moment to be coherent with our ideas, and conscious about the power we have in our hands.
If the 99% removes our funds from the major banking institutions to non-profit credit unions, ethic banks or other kinds of alternative and social economy 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. But we can go further, the 5 is one of the best days to have the most impact on the market and the banking accounting, so if we succeed the 5th. of November we can repeat every 5 of every month this same action, trying to break the record every time. The people will get used to it and we will use the same campaign of communication so it will be very easy to do it again.
