3,000 Descend on Bank of America Massachusetts Headquarters

BOSTON—(ENEWSPF)—October 1, 2011.  More than 3,000 protesters descended on Boston’s financial district Friday, surrounding Bank of America’s Federal Street headquarters as a delegation of foreclosure victims and supporters presented their demands for loan modifications and stopping foreclosures in the bank’s main lobby. The nonviolent sit-in continued for nearly two hours before police placed two dozen of the protesters into custody. This event is part of a 10-city campaign aligned with The New Bottom Line, a nationwide coalition of 1,000 faith-based and community organizations that seeks to hold Wall Street accountable.
