Big bank protests come to Boulder Saturday

By Boulder Weekly Staff

On Saturday, Nov. 5, the nonprofit organization MoveOn.org Civil Action is protesting Wall Street Banks such as JP Morgan Chase Bank and Wells Fargo by holding community gatherings in front of the big banks, including in Boulder.

In addition, Occupy Boulder will hold a “Move Your Money” rally from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the intersection of Broadway and Canyon. More information about the rally can be found at facebook.com/nov.fifth. 

MoveOn.org Civil Action is holding its gatherings with the slogan “Make Wall Street Pay!” to demonstrate that the banks are hurting the still-struggling economy, and to encourage community members to pull their money out of the banks and move it to smaller ones.

There will be 237 gatherings held throughout the country on Nov. 5, according to MoveOn.org’s website.

In Boulder, the protest will take place at the Wells Fargo on the Pearl Street Mall at 9:30 a.m. There also will be a protest in Broomfield at the JP Morgan Chase Bank at 120th and Vrain.
