Unlike ripped-off American consumers, pensioners, mortgage holders and savers, Dutch citizen ACTIVISM brings IMMEDIATE response from bailed out, bonus seeking banksters...

Dutch citizens,  floowing the Activism of Mideast democracy protesters, and London protests  against the establishmen  SLASHING popular programs after GIVING HUNDREDS of BILLIONS of pounds to bailed-out, welfare-queen banks,  DEMANDED  that  BANKER  BONUSES be withdrawn, threatening a RUN on bailed-out ING bank... 

  Dutch bankers' bonuses axed by people power

An online campaign has overturned ING's executive pay policy, and the mood in Amsterdam is getting increasingly militant about bonuses at bailed-out banks

Customers at Dutch bank ING threatened to collectively withdraw deposits in protest against bonuses awarded to executives. 
 After a furious row over pay packages at Amsterdam-based ING in which thousands of customers threatened to make mass withdrawals, the Netherlands is now vying for the title of Europe's most bonus-hating country.
A growing Dutch political storm could end with a blanket ban on bonuses to financiers who work for institutions bailed out by the taxpayer.
ING customers mobilised on Twitter and other social networks to protest at bonuses paid to bosses at the bank, one of the biggest in the country. The threat of direct action raised the spectre of a partial run on ING, terrifying the Dutch establishment. Fred Polhout, union organiser at the bank, says: "People were outraged. We heard about the bloated sums being paid again in the City and in New York; but suddenly the issue exploded on our own front door."
Americans, lied to relentlessly by the war lobby & financial swindlers, treasury looters, and economy wrecking loan shark, welfare sucking  bankers (and their bought and owned media whores and political prostitutes) over the past two decades, have FORGOTTEN  how to sustain POPULAR PROTEST,  and especially prefer to play DOORMAT to BAILED OUT, THIEVING BANKERS, to withdrawing their money from those  bailed out,  serially fraudulent, loan sharking, congress bribing,  economy wrecking banks.
