Move Your Money Day–January 6th

Support your community.

Transfer to a local bank or credit union, such as:

  • Woodsboro Bank
  • Frederick County Bank
  • Comstar Credit Union.

Divest from Wall Street Banks who caused the financial meltdown of 2008. American taxpayers paid $700 billion to bail out Wall Street abuses, while their profits now soar.

We must take reform into our own hands.

Look for more info on a rally later on that day.

Occupy Frederick, police prepare for encampment

Plans for an Occupy Frederick movement are still under way as protesters prepare to camp out at an undisclosed location by the end of the year.

For now, Occupy supporters are not revealing a location for their encampment because they do not want law enforcement officials to stop them before protesting starts.
