PowerShift.Org: Bank of America's "Automated Truth Machines" hit Washington, DC!

-By Ash Lauth

April 26, 2012- This morning people across Washington, DC got a dose of reality about Bank of America.

In the dark of night activists went to all known Bank of America branches and over 50 ATMs to transform them into “Automated Truth Machines.”

Activists used special non-adhesive stickers designed to look exactly like BoA’s ATM interface, so when people went to use ATMs in the morning they would learn the truth about Bank of America. Instead of checking and saving accounts, these new menus offered a list of everything BoA customers’ money is used for, including investment in coal-fired power plants, foreclosure on Americans’ homes, bankrolling climate change, and paying for fat executive bonuses.

Residents across DC are encouraged to use the Twitter hashtag #BoAtruth to report finding ATMs that have been turned into the “Automated Truth Machines” to get the word out about Bank of America’s destructive practices.

Here's a handy map of all the BoA ATMs we made it a bit more truthful last night.
