#M15 OWS: FightBAC! "Downgrade Bank of America!" Direct Action

13:17 Mar 15 2012 Wall Street, New York

Description



New York, March 15 2012--During a rally outside Moody's Investor Services, Columbia grad, ex-Wall Street employee, now Occupier Alexis Goldstein spells out the appalling fiscal facts about Bank of America, a taxpayer-supported, de facto ward of state facing numerous lawsuits for its egregious behavior.

B of A is nearing bankruptcy. Why not dismantle it now? The rally was a stop on a march starting shortly after 3pm at the World Financial Center waterfront; its final destination, a Bank of America local branch where protesters brought bookcases, couches, chairs and plants to set up a symbolic home against the bank which has foreclosed on millions of homeowners in the United States. This is the first in a series of monthly actions in OWS's campaign to foreclose on B of A.
