Activists alter 85 BofA ATMs in SF to become “Automated Truth Machines”
Rainforest Action Network claims responsibility for the art-prank intervention.
RAN activists took to the streets of San Francisco last night and turned every Bank of America ATM in the city into an Automated Truth Machine. The activists used special non-adhesive stickers designed to look exactly like BoA’s ATM interface. But instead of checking and savings accounts, these new menus offered a list of everything BoA customers’ money is being used for, including investment in coal-fired power plants, foreclosure on Americans’ homes, bankrolling of climate change, and paying for fat executive bonuses.
*This is the kind of activism I really enjoy.
