Additional attempts were made to storm Bank of America and ALEC before success was achieved in storming the Verizon store, and to storm the American Bankers Association after Wells Fargo.

The Verizon store was stormed for two reasons: Verizon Wireless is providing a lot of customer information to the FBI, NSA, and so forth, and Verizon, also known as “VeriGreedy” has been trying to bust their union for over a year.

All the banks were targeted for robosigned foreclosures, plus PNC for “investments” in mountaintop removal coal mining and Wells Fargo for their investments in private prisons.

During the blockade of the doors on the IMF’s “infoshop” a call was put out for a massive effort to shut down the Spring 2013 Meetings of the IMF and World Bank. Occupiers called for a full-on national/global mobilization of the Spring 2000 class to achieve this, saying it has been done before.
