Activists deface Bank of America ATMs in San Francisco


www.rawstory.com

Activists with the Rainforest Action Network recently devised a clever way of promoting their message: defacing Bank of America ATMs with non-adhesive stickers that look like the bank’s software interface, bearing some startling truths about the nation’s largest financial institution.

As part of a campaign they’re calling “Bankrupting America,” the activists claim to have visited 85 ATM locations, turning the “automated teller machines” into “automated truth machines.”

Their sticker asks users to “select your transaction,” with options like: “invest in coal-fired

I think activism is spreading slowly, but surely.

Besides the large movements like OWS (which was the only time the world ever protested together in history), and of course the Ron Paul revolution, there are smaller groups spreading activism.

Now people are starting to use harmless ways to communicate their message in the form of non-adhersive stickers. This is a very clever way to spread ideas, and I can only see these movements spreading. They're like anti-bodies trying to cure a sick country.

Those are awesome!!!

I like the fact that they are non-adhesive material, meaning they cant charge them with a crime can they? It wont leave a mark after being removed...

I doubt it would reach that many people though... figure 1 avg american would complain about it and have it removed before other people see it...

Gotta be some other ideas out there to catch everybodies eyes

Very creative though!

That's a pretty clever way of protesting a companies actions. The stickers are non-adhesive so they won't damage anything and they certainly are not lying about the bank, it's all true. I hope to see more clever way of protesting and raising awareness. You know.. without camping in a park..
