Occupy Buffalo protestors on Thursday convinced their city to end its business ties with JP Morgan Chase – and move $45 million out of  the Wall Street giant and into a local bank – First Niagara Financial Group.  As the Buffalo city comptroller said about the move: “Not only will the funds earn more interest with First Niagara, a major local employer headquartered in Buffalo, but it also sends a crystal-clear message to JPMorgan Chase that the City of Buffalo is not happy with their business practices.”  

One of the great successes of the Occupy movement since it began this year is convincing Americans, businesses, and entire cities to move hundreds of millions of dollars out of Wall Street banks and into local banks.  Let’s keep it up.

And the rest they can use to pay down debt from tax breaks to corporations and the 1%.  Everybody wins ..... except JP Morgan Chase.
