Today about 12 protesters from the group “MicCheckWallStreet” protested the actions of big banks, including Bank of America, in front of a Bank of America in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. From their website:

“While drawing attention to BoA’s practices we want to also encourage their customers to foreclose on their accounts & take their money to a credit union or community bank. We’ll have monopoly money and “foreclosure” notices on hand to give out with some helpful facts about BoA and more information about doing just that.”

One protester said they were there “because Bank of America is corrupt”. Other highlights include a walkthrough of the protesters, the relatively large police presence, a protester yelling “Everybody loves money!”, protesters encouraging pedestrians to “play monopoly” and a confrontation with a Ron Paul supporter.
