San Francisco Activists Turned 85 Bank Of America ATMs Into 'Truth Machines' Last Night

Primary tabs

While San Francisco was sleeping last night, members of the Rainforest Action Network (RAN), an activist group were out on the streets working on Bank of America ATMs.

And by work, we mean turning them into 'truth machines,' says SFist.

RAN members used stickers that look exactly like Bank of America's ATM interface, but instead of asking users to choose 'checking or savings,' these stickers tell users about things BofA does like:

  • Invest in coal-fired power plants
  • Foreclose on America's homes
  • Bankroll climate change
  • Fund executive bonuses

All in all, the group hit 85 ATMs, you can see a map of where they went here.
