+ - Bank of America Cuts Off Wikileaks Transactions-> 1

Submitted by Chaonici
Chaonici (1913646) writes "The first actual bank to do so, Bank of America has decided that it will follow in the footsteps of PayPal, MasterCard, and Visa, and halt all its transactions that it believes are intended for WikiLeaks, including donations in support of the organization. 'This decision,' says the bank, 'is based upon our reasonable belief that WikiLeaks may be engaged in activities that are, among other things, inconsistent with our internal policies for processing payments.' Coincidentally, in a 2009 interview with Forbes magazine, Julian Assange stated that he was in possession of the hard drive of a Bank of America executive, and that he planned to release information about a major bank early next year."

  • We live in a capitalist society. All we need to do is boycott this bank, and all Assange needs to do is switch bank providers. Simple no?
