“Wild Old Women” Protest Closes Bank of America Branch

Once again about 40 protestors, led by the Wild Old Women (WOW) affinity group of Occupy Bernal, picketed a Bank of America branch at 3250 Mission St. today to protest for-profit evictions and foreclosures, as well as poor bank treatment of the elderly and the banks not paying their fair of taxes. The B of A branch staff closed and locked both doors of the bank and posted a sign (see picture below). Thanks to the WOW for pulling this together!

This protest is a weekly action at 12:00-1:00pm on Thursdays, except instead of Thursday, January 19, the action will switch to 9:00am on Friday, January 20, in solidarity with the Occupy Wall St West actions throughout the city focusing on the S.F. Financial District.

Join our neighbors in the Mission for a protest at 12:00 noon on Saturday, January 14, at the 16th Mission BART station plaza.
