Our October meetup will be held just before the World Co-operatives United, taking place in Manchester. With this in mind, we've been able to invite one of the conference speakers along:
The team from the Move Your Money UK campaign.
Move Your Money has tapped into public anger at the banking sector via a simple call to action: asking people to publicly take their custom to more "ethical" organisations such as the coops. building societies and credit unions.
We'll be joined by campaigners from Move Your Money to discuss their tactics and use of social media to spread the word and engage supporters. In the meantime, talk to them via their blog, Facebook and Twitter.
NB: No need to bring any cheque books or paying-in slips :)
