I have signed the pledge.
But i am now looking for some good alternatives to my regular bank account.
Preferably something with free international ATM withdrawals and a Unionpay compatibility.
Has anybody put together a good list of social lending sites, cooperatives etc that we can migrate too?

People everywhere are closing their accounts with the big Wall Street
banks. If you're ready to join in, sign the Move Your Money pledge.

Dear MoveOn member,
The big Wall Street banks crashed our economy, refused to clean up the
mess, and still haven't been held accountable.
Now the Occupy movement has inspired people everywhere to take action in
protest and a lot of us have realized there's something we can do to
fight back: close our accounts and move our money out of the big Wall
Street banks and into community banks and credit unions.
This week, in the lead-up to the November 5 Make Wall Street Pay day of
action targeting the giant banks, we've set up a new "Move Your Money
Pledge." Our goal is to get as many people as possible pledging to close
their accounts with the big banks.
Are you ready to show the Wall Street banks that we're going to hold
them accountable ourselves? If you're ready to stop banking with Wall
Street—or if you already have—click here to sign the Move Your Money pledge:
*Yes, I want to sign the Move Your Money pledge.*
By signing the pledge you'll be able to turn your private choice as a
bank customer into a powerful public display of outrage and protest by
joining tens of thousands of others who are ready to switch banks and
We have resources available to help you find a new bank and a guide for
how to go through the process of closing an account. Whether it's a
spare credit card, a savings account, or your personal checking, every
If we can get a huge number of accounts closed at the major banks we'll
certainly impact their bottom line, but we'll also do something even
more powerful—we'll send them a very clear message that the public's
outrage is only growing stronger and that we're not going to let them
off the hook for the damage they've done to our economy.
Can you sign the pledge and close an account?
*Yes, I'll sign the pledge.*
Thanks for all you do.
