Bank of America’s annual shareholder meeting this year is occupied.

2 posts / 0 new

Thousands of protesters marched to the scene of the shareholder meeting on Wednesday in Charlotte, North Carolina to raise awareness about Bank of America’s corruption of our government, ties to the dirty coal industry, and illegal foreclosure practices. In response – the City Manager of Charlotte – declared the shareholder meeting an “extraordinary event” meaning local law enforcement could limit free speech, profile, and randomly search demonstrators.

While the marches and demonstrations were peaceful – there were reports that four people were arrested. Meanwhile – inside the meeting – shareholders voted for more disclosure of the bank’s lobbying efforts. Unfortunately, the measure failed to pass. Bank of America is just the latest bank to see its shareholder meeting targeted – last month – hundreds of people rallied outside Wells Fargo’s shareholder meeting leading to 24 arrests.

The bankster’s hijacking of our economy and democracy is no longer taking place in the shadows – it’s out in the open and the people are fighting back. Let’s keep it up.

The world we're leaving for today's teens...

Without immediate global action on climate change, today's teenagers will be forced to live with the consequences of our inaction. The World Bank has issued their third report of climate change, and it says that global temperatures could rise by as much as 4 degrees Celsius by the time today's teens hit their 80th birthday.
