Protest at Bank of America

12 May

Over 1,000 people protested at the Bank of America’s annual shareholders meeting Wednesday in Charlotte, North Carolina, challenging the mega-banks practices on foreclosures and its support for the dirty coal industry. Six people were arrested. The protest is one of a series of actions at the headquarters of major corporations organized by a coalition of unions, community organizing groups, faith-based organizations, and others, catalyzed by the changing public mood created by the Occupy Wall Street movement.
