From CNN's Carol Costello:
Three weeks ago, activist Molly Katchpole organized an online petition, which has gathered over 300,000 signatures, telling Bank of America to reverse their decision to charge its customers $5 a month to use their debit cards.
Katchpole's efforts to shame the bank into eliminating the fee proved successful yesterday when Bank of America announced that they were abandoning the fee. By strategizing and executing a specific plan, Katchpole evoked change in less than a month from one of the largest banks in the nation.
When it comes to Occupy Wall Street, another movement concerned with the activity of big banks, many have criticized the occupiers for not having a single mission statement or one way to protest.
