meetings. As of now, there is no local contact. E-mail Wildleaf:

Here's the story:

Many otherwise apathetic American will not cross a picket line; millions of
customers not doing bank business on May 8th is the beginning of the end of
Bank of America—criminal enterprise and leader of the war against the poor.

OWS organizers in every state are organizing a picket to *hit them where
they live---$$$$.* Nothing has changed, the banks are too big to fail,
their executives are still criminals and our demand is uncompromising:

*Break Up Bank of America!*

Check out the tools that will make this simple:

Bank of America is bad for America! Since the 2008 Great Recession was
orchestrated by the 'too big to fail' Wall Street banks, citizens have
stepped forward as the true leaders who reject the too big to fail premise.
Too big to fail is too big to exist.

Last year thousands came to Charlotte, NC, to voice their anger at the 1%
Bank of America shareholders meeting. The shareholders and CEO Moynihan
don't respect the people. It is now clear that there is no chance for
reforming Bank of America, it must be broken up. During this year's
shareholders meeting we are taking the protest nationwide.

A new Rasmussen survey shows that 50% of U.S. Adults favor a plan to break
up the 12 megabanks, which currently control about 69% of the banking
industry. Twenty-three percent (23%) oppose breaking up the largest banks,
while another 27% are undecided.

Bank of America will be dealt a deathblow by up millions of pinpricks and
one demand: Breakup Bank of America. Many otherwise apathetic American will
not cross a picket line; millions of customers not doing bank business on
May 8th will begin the bleed. The Achilles heel of BoFa is the
accessibility of their 16,000+ ATMs and 5,600+ branches around the country.
A picket can be as simple as 1 person with a sign in front of a BoA during
business hours on May 8th..

On May 8th, the day of Bank of America's 1% shareholders meeting,
nationwide picketing will occur during open business hours at the Bank of
America locations nearest you In some cities, people will organize marches,
some may do creative direct action and some might consider civil
disobedience. Organized actions are enthusiastically encouraged but the
common picketer, with the sign holding a simple truth, are the everyday
heroes that will break up Bank of America.

"Our goal is a society that prioritizes the needs of all before the profits
of the few." passed by Occupy Boston General Assembly 11/29/11
