Today is D-Day for Cantona Revolution

Tue, Dec 7, 2010

Featured, News

Today is the day of Cantona’s call for revolution in the banking system, will anything significant happen?

Cantona told the daily Liberation that he would heed his own call to withdraw money.

“Given the strange solidarity that has sprung up, yes. On December 7, I’ll be at the bank.”

Online supporters have pledged that they will either definitely or probably withdraw cash. They are aiming for a bank-run like that which hit the UK’s Northern Rock in 2008.

Ministers all over Europe have derided the calls, with Christine Lagarde, France’s finance minister, telling Cantona to stick to football instead.

Francois Baroin, the French budget minister, said Cantona’s call “would be comic if it weren’t tragic,” describing it as “grotesque and irresponsible”.

Will you be heeding Cantona’s call for revolution? Let us know in the comments!

    You’re a fool who doesn’t understand anything about banking or finance. Of course people are annoyed, but this is just stupid and if it worked, which it won’t, would send us back into the dark ages for trade.

    Is this just a publicity stunt for you? Don’t say you’re “raising awareness” of issues. That is the poor excuse of people who don’t add anything to society.

    P.S. Are there any pictures of you having empited your bank account?

    Hi Eric, I’m Antonio from Italy. Unfortunally I can’t draw my money from “my” bank simply for one reason. I dont’ have any cent on my bank account!!!
    Anyway I completly agree with you that if we claim our money (who have money:-) from the banks they’ll collapse in one hour.

    There’s a simple reason. During the years, they printed more bills than the gold they own!!!! The value of our bills is close to ZERO!!!
    Dont’ give up!

    monsieur,

    ô combien l’idée est bonne !! et alléchante au vu du mépris et de l’arrogance des banques à notre endroit, qui continuent à agir en toute impunité.
    oui à une mobilisation nationale voire internationale pour un retrait massif d’argent mieux préparée. Mais, comment retirer tout son argent quand l’on est à découvert au 2 du mois ! À quoi cela servirait-il, les banques ayant le soutien de la Banque de France ?

    Tu as plus de plomb dans ta tête que ces ***** de la télé!
    Bravo!!

    Great initiative as I am sincerely hoping for a financial revolution myself.
    Unfortunately I believe Mr. Cantona does not have the same amount on his bank account than me ! So withdrawing my credit will only be a drop in the ocean.
    Seems the Swiss got the message when they discovered that UBS was speculating with their money in improper ways.
    Your message just needs to be spread among more people.

    Mr Cantona, you have support here !

    trusting this web site, you should have my e-mail address.

    Sincerely,

    A bientot,

    so how it goes? this revo?

    Браво,г-н Кантона! Идеята Ви е много добра!!! Трябва всички едновременно да ударим наглата банкова система! За съжаление, хората не са пораснали достатъчно в умственото си развитие, за да се спасят по този начин от финансовата криза!? Макар и само като провокация – засега това стрестна банкерите!

    Monsieur CANTONA
    Vous avez appuye sur le bouton . Bravo
    mais je ne pense pas que votre solution soit la bonne………
    Il est impossible de procéder comme vous le préconnisez.
    une meilleure solution,plus douce sans mettre à mal l’économie de notre pays,serait plus rationnelle.
    Arretons de nous plaindre et prenons nous en charge,sans claironner “la révolution” qui n’est pas souhaitable -
    CREONS “NOTRE BANQUE” avec un statut de coopérative ou TOUS les clients seraient associés.Carte bancaire à 2€ et prets bancaires
    à taux BdeFrance+0,50/1%-avec comme Patron un ancien Directeur de Banque qui connaitrait tous les rouages du financement.(que je ne suis pas)
    Je pense que nous pourrions récuperer un maximum de Clients qui épousent nos idées (non revolutionnaires,mais plus justes)

    Rien qui ne m’étonne, à part peut-être le fait qu’il ne se présente pas.
    Je ne sais pas s’il croyait réellement que les français, par nature frileux, s’engageraient dans une démarche vaine dont ils ne perçoivent que les inconvénients.Gageons qu’il en était parfaitement conscient à s’engager ainsi dans ce qu’il sait faire le mieux, comme tout artiste,questionner, inspirer, déranger.Il n’est pas économiste, n’en a pas l’ambition mais exprime cette volonté de contrer le défaitisme, une action symbolique qui est un plein succès donc; Betencourt ne fait plus que les seconds titres.
    Son absence justifie peut-être ces choix délibérés d’un coup d’éclat, non d’un coup d’épée dans l’eau.
    A lui de mettre désormais plus en lumière ses réelles motivations.

  15. MARIO COSMO Says:

    I sincerely believe that Eric Cantona is a very intelligent man-as well as a great footballer-and is right about the withdrawel of our money. However, all must take part, not just a few. We really do need to do something real now. because the world is becoming a terrible place to live. The bankers were given all this power by the Capitalist power-mongers of the world, to rob us dry and hope we starve or go away, if we can’t get money or work as slaves for them. We are meant to slave, supply them with our money and then die before we begin to cosr their regimes money for care. we MUST FIGHT NOW-tomorrow is too late!
