Occupy group seeks to launch CU
FULLERTON, Calif. (2/29/12)--A group in Fullerton, Calif.,  calling itself  "Occupy OC"--OC stands for Orange County--is trying to launch a credit union.

The protest group said it  plans to launch a federation of member-owned credit unions that are "competitive, stable and democratic" and "dedicated to peacefully combating economic injustice," according to a report in The Orange County Register (Feb. 25).

An inaugural general assembly was set for the "Occupy First Federal Credit Unions" project for last weekend.  The group has not updated its website to reflect any decisions made at the meeting.
