OccupyMN Arrests At US Bank

Three Occupy Minneapolis protesters were arrested at US Bank's national headquarters as their request for US Bank to agree to meet with Monique White and Bobby Hull, two homeowners facing foreclosure, was denied.

Three Occupy Minneapolis protesters were arrested at US Bank's national headquarters as their request for US Bank to agree to meet with Monique White and Bobby Hull, two homeowners facing foreclosure, was denied.

About 50 protesters marched through the downtown skyways delivering 6500 petitions to US Bank from community members asking them negotiate to keep White and Hull in their homes. Protesters entered a US Bank headquarters and refused to leave until US Bank set up a meeting with the homeowners.

The three arrested were dressed as "OccuPirates," to draw attention to the unprecedented plundering of our communities and our nations wealth by the big banks and corporations.

Last week, US Bank announced record profits totaling over 4.8 billion dollars in 2011, as they continue to foreclose on more Minnesota families than ever while increasing fees to their customers.
