I Pay My Taxes, Why Doesn't Bank of America?

Banking protests planned February 26 across the USA.

The UK Uncut movement has crossed the pond and inspired activists in the US. Americans are targeting Bank of America. This corporation, the largest bank and the fifth largest corporation in the US, has consistently avoided any form of accountability to the American taxpayer. In 2009 it paid no tax … but received a tax refund. And last year the federal government gave Bank of America $2.3 billion.

Update: February 26 – citizens across the country are protesting at Bank of America branches and peaceably but forcefully demanding they account for their actions. This could finally be the movement that keeps the banks honest. Let’s make this go viral … with flash mobs protesting against corporate crooks all across America.


Go to US Uncut to find a protest near you!

I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area, listen to progressive media and didn't even know about this; I would've gone if I had. Why can't we get more coordinated. If they have Democratic Party and Republican Party websites, why doesn't someone smarter than me put up a Let's Party Party website where we list national days of action. If one exists already, great, but I don't know about it and neither does anyone else apparently (judging by size of these protests). Get a few celebs to buy time to advertise it, etc.

It is not the banks that are the trouble, they are just a smokescreen to hide the system which is the trouble. The system-THE FEDERAL RESERVE- if you want freedom it must go. They have controlled the FIAT money system for almost a hundred years-paper money is death to the productive classes. This has been known for a thousand years. The Fed wants you to blame the banks-get with it people, it's the Fed that are THE problem

Any suggestions on how the US should transition away from the fed? Also in case you didn't notice the people who work for the fed are the bottom 5% of the job pool, the top 95% are working for banks on wall street. idiot...

Your comment was so stupid I had to trouble myself to address it just so that you become a little bit more aware of how stupid you are.

In case you haven't noticed, the people running the Fed and the ones running the banks are the same revolving door collection of predatory leeches. It's a feedback loop at this point that needs to be wiped out of our society.
