Bank of America opening delayed by 108 foot “Foreclosure” banner

On the 29th of June, the Occupy Caravan and Occupy DC unfurled a massive banner to block the doors of Bank of America on 15th st. Nobody was arrested as police made a futile attempt to wait out Occupy on a 100 degree day. The banner stayed in place fore two and a half hours. The only concession to the cops was moving the banner far enough out from the building that pedestrians could pass behind it and the window washers work, but very few customers would approach the bank under these conditions, and the bank was late to open.

Since Bank of America has foreclosed on so many people’s homes after using the “too big to fail” excuse to get a tax-funded bailout, why can’t the people foreclose on Bank of America? If you have money there, close your account and put your money in a local bank or credit union.

Since sleeping in the new tents at McPherson is “illegal,” why not sleep in front of Bank of America?
