HSBC Valentine’s Day action (#OWS)
We in the Alt Banking group are planning a protest against “too big to jail” bank HSBC for Valentine’s Day. As soon as we started the planning we realized they are utterly ripe for satire with their ridiculous airport posters like this one:
Here’s a new poster for them, courtesy of Nick from our group (and crossposted from the Alt Banking blog):
Readers, can you help us come up with posters and slogans for the event? Bonus if it has to do with a Valentine’s Day theme, along the lines of “You broke my heart, HSBC!” or if it riffs on their slogan, “The World’s Local Bank”. We will be making posters and flyers with this stuff next Sunday afternoon, if you’re going to be up near Columbia you should join us.
Thanks for your help! If you tweet this, don’t forget to use the hashtag #HSBC as a gift to those guys.
update: Public Citizen in Maryland is attempting to revoke HSBC’s bank charter.
