    Protesters march Saturday as part of Bank Transfer Day.

    “Bank abuse has got to stop, that is why we’re breaking up.” 

    That was the chant of Occupy Philly protesters, as they met Saturday afternoon at City Hall.

    The group marched in the city streets, as part of "Move Your Money Philly."

    Protesters were urging people to “break up” with big banks, and move their money to local banks and credit unions.

    This was part of the national movement called Bank Transfer Day.
