This was an awesome action on the part of Occupy Detroit. It was so perfect, Bank of America security and staff didn't interrupt them as they played out a live "Monopoly" game in the middle of the bank and there were absolutely no arrests. Occupy Detroit and the 99% Spring "played" the live version of "Monopoly" (Home Foreclosure Edition) in the Bank of America branch in Detroit's Guardian building. The action was meant to draw attention to the BoA shareholders meeting that was held in Charlotte, North Carolina on Wednesday May 9th.
