Most Americans haven’t heard of him, but Eric Cantona is a huge international soccer star known throughout Europe and much of the world.
Cantona is calling for Europeans to pull their money out of banks on December 7th:
I don’t think we can be entirely happy seeing such misery around us. Unless you live in a pod. But then there is a chance… there is something to do. Nowadays what does it mean to be on the streets? To demonstrate? You swindle yourself. Anyway, that’s not the way any more.
We don’t pick up weapons to kill people to start the revolution. The revolution is really easy to do these days. What’s the system? The system is built on the power of the banks. So it must be destroyed through the banks.
This means that the three million people with their placards on the streets, they go to the bank and they withdraw their money and the banks collapse. Three million, 10 million people, and the banks collapse and there is no real threat. A real revolution.
We must go to the bank. In this case there would be a real revolution. It’s not complicated; instead of going on the streets and driving kilometres by car you simply go to the bank in your country and withdraw your money, and if there are a lot of people withdrawing their money the system collapses. No weapons, no blood, or anything like that.
It’s not complicated and in this case they will listen to us in a different way.
This would be like a well-known retired American athlete – like Michael Jordan, Joe Montana or Willie Mays – calling for concerted political action.
