What these pictures show are six hundred ordinary citizens descending on the M&I branch near the Wisconsin Capitol after learning of their purchase of the gubernatorial election last November. Two firefighters with old school ideas about saving had over $600,000 between the two of them and they demanded cashier's checks on the spot.
Not everyone has the purchase price of a couple of homes sitting in the bank, but if the 60% of Wisconsin that's sick to death of Scott Walker's behavior simply go close their accounts the bank will crash and they'll have made their non violent statement, by pulling the funds from his supporters. This will hinder the bank's assets & prosperity, to assist with Gov. Walker's financial backing, to fight the pending recall next January.
The bank supported the anti-union candidate, the Union workers & their supporters remove their money from the bank. Money talks & money walks.
Opponents of Walker have organized through Facebook (“Boycott Scott Walker Contributors”) and are targeting other businesses supporting the governor, including Northwestern Mutual Insurance, Johnsonville Sausage, the Wisconsin Realtors Association, the Wisconsin Automobile and Truck Dealers Association and Georgia-Pacific, which is owned by GOP heavyweight contributors David and Charles Koch.
Gandhi would have approved.

A few people gathered in Wisconsin on Saturday to let Gov. Walker know
they dislike his union busting move.
