3 Easy Ways You Can Help Take Your Country Back This Weekend

1 – Participate in Bank Transfer Day Nov. 5

Saturday, November 5 · 9:00am – 5:00pm
FOR MORE INFO: http://facebook.com/nov.fifth

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!

Occupy Des Moines
Saturday, November 5 · 9:30am – 12:30pm
International Day of Action this Saturday! Join us in Des Moines as we take on the big banks that crashed the economy! We won’t pay for their crisis! It’s time to make Wall Street pay!
We will meet at Western Gateway Park and march to Wells Fargo Bank (2840 Ingersoll Ave, Des Moines) then march to Bank of America, (3422 Ingersoll Avenue, Des Moines, IA 50312). Both banks are open.
