Mizuho Corporate Bank, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Sumitomo Mitsui and Bank of Japan made 180 billion yen in loans to Kyushu Electric.
Kyushu has been under considerable public scrutiny after it was made public that they had actively been faking public support for their nuclear plants and adding MOX plutonium fuel to certain reactors.
The company president refused to step down even though he was directly implicated in these frauds.
These loans angered many people already frustrated with Kyushu’s corporate bad behavior. A campaign began on twitter over the weekend where people pulled their accounts out of these banks and urged others to do the same. This idea spread quickly as a Japanese twist on Occupy Wall Street, giving people some sort of control over an out of control situation. If you have heard of people pulling their accounts or did so yourself let us know in the comments. The numbers we saw over the weekend hinted at a widespread effort.
