A stealth, late night operation turned all fifty of Bank of America's known Washington, DC ATM's into "Automated Truth Machines."
The student day of action occurred on 1T Day, the day that student debt hit $1 trillion dollars, and students on campuses across the country took action to voice their demands. Students at George Washington University hosted a teach-in on student debt outside a campus branch of Bank of America, students at University of Massachusetts, Amherst burned their students loans outside their Bank of America branch, along with students at Yale University, University of Chicago, University of Oregon, University of Texas. And in Bank of America’s home state, UNC-Chapel Hill students delivered demands to stop financing coal to their local BoA branch.
These actions are happening in the lead up to BoA’s May 9th shareholder meeting where environmental and economic justice groups are coming together to ensure that Bank of America stops bankrupting our future.
