MicCheckWallStreet protests at Bank of America in Seattle 04/14/2012
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 theirÂ website:
“While drawing attention to BoAâ€™s practices we want to also encourage their customers to foreclose on their accounts & take their money to a credit union or community bank. Weâ€™ll have monopoly money and â€œforeclosureâ€ notices on hand to give out with some helpful facts about BoA and more information about doing just that.”
One protester said they were thereÂ “because Bank of America is corrupt”. Other highlights include aÂ walkthrough of the protesters,Â the relatively large police presence, a protester yellingÂ “Everybody loves money!”, protesters encouraging pedestrians toÂ “play monopoly”Â and a confrontation with aÂ Ron Paul supporter.
