Close your Bank of America Account on Valentine's Day
10 Feb 2009
Modified: 02:52:41 PM
From Rising Tide Boston-
We demand that Bank of America:
1)immediately declare a moratorium on evictions of foreclosed homes
2)drop its financial support for the climate-disrupting coal industry, including strip-mining, mountaintop removal, and coal-fired power plants.

If you've still got one, here's a perfect chance to...
Saturday February 14 (Valentine's Day) 2009 between 9am and noon
At one of the two convenient locations below:

- 1440 Dorchester Ave.
(Fields Corner T Stop)
City Life/Vida Urbana will be organizing a protest at the Fields Corner BOA branch, demanding a moratorium on post-foreclosure evictions. CL/VU has already done amazing and inspiring work to physically block evictions from happening, but these evictions should never be ordered in the first place.

- 699 Boylston St.
(Copley T Stop)
Rising Tide will be performing street theater at the Copley Square branch and providing letters to hand the bank demanding an end to evictions and BOA's loans to the coal industry, including companies involved in mountaintop removal and other forms of strip mining.

These actions are being organized cooperatively and are indicative of the growing numbers of people who are angry with Bank of America. Expect increasingly frequent actions as organizers from various movements get together to mount sustained and unified campaigns against the bank.

See you on Saturday! People in about a dozen cities that we know of will be participating in this day of action.

For questions, or to let us know you're coming, whether to close an account or support others who are, email:
valentinesday (at)

P.S. If you're closing an account, you might want to open a new one with a different bank first and make sure all your old checks have cleared.
