November 5, 2011 (San Diego) –“As of today, one million American consumers are hurling a lightning bolt at the big banks, moving their money out,” Diane Sawyer at ABC news reported Friday.
That report aired before today's target date set by the “Move Your Money” movement for consumers to strike back at Wall Street banks blamed for the financial meltdown. Across America, people are heeding the call, shifting their funds into credit unions or locally-owned banks.
