Occupiers Shut Down Bank Of America

A small group of Occupiers stopped by the Bank of America on Liberty Street and Broadway near Wall Street in New York on Friday, August 3rd for a quick stunt, not anticipating much of a reaction. As soon as bank security escorted them out of the building, they locked up the bank and shut down the escalator at least an hour before normal closing time. It appears there were only three members of Occupy present, but they were needless to say quite surprised at the reaction.
