Dear People for Polity,

When Molly Katchpole found out that Bank of America would charge $5 a month to use a debit card, she was upset -- so she started a petition on

Since then, 225,000 members have signed her petition. And now Bank of America is under enormous pressure to cancel its new debit card fee. A Bank of America executive even called Molly and told her that while cancelling the fee would be "premature," the bank was "closely monitoring customer feedback."
