Nov 5th: Global Bank Transfer Day
I was pleasantly surprised to come across this today and felt I needed to share it immediately! According to this highly popular facebook page, November 5th is the date set where people will be extracting their money from their bank accounts and into local credit unions. This is taken directly from the group: Together we can ensure that these banking institutions will always remember the 5th of November. If we shift our funds from the for-profit banking institutions in favor of not-for-profit credit unions before this date, we will send a clear message that conscious consumers won’t support companies with unethical business practices. It’s time to invest in local community growth! You can find details about how the day started and what motives were behind it HERE. This is the type of action that can assist in creating change on this planet. It is non-violent and puts the control in the hands of the masses. Much of the problem at this time is we are faced with the want and need for change, but we are still asking our governments to create the change. This unfortunately will not happen given who is in power at the top of all governments. What the people need to do is simple: stop playing the game. We are sitting at the game board and someone has decided to manipulate it, create new rules and take over. Here we are playing along with them. But there is another board only a few steps away, so instead of waiting or asking for the manipulator to stop rigging the game, just take your friends and go play with the next board.
Then who will the manipulator have left to rule? It truly is that simple. Stop playing the game. We don’t need anger. We don’t need to yell or fight. We don’t need judgement. We don’t need justice. We don’t need to state what is right and what is wrong. Just stop playing the game! All of these that I just mentioned simply play into their game! To get an idea of how much they fear actions like this, Bank of America has began charging fees and making it more difficult for people to close their accounts. I can’t stress enough how taking an approach of simply not playing the game is much more powerful than simply being angry and yelling at cops who break up protests. We have the power to not feed into this system, let’s use it. .
