On the day when people across the country are moving their money out of big banks, eight protesters outside a bank in Dallas were arrested.
The national movement is called Bank Transfer Day, a response to plans by Bank of America and other large financial institutions to add fees to debit card users.
But it was Occupy Dallas protesters creating the scene on Saturday, where an estimated 150 people joined in, marching from bank-to-bank in downtown Dallas.
Police officers were close behind, watching every move.
"We had the banks that we wanted to go to, and from what happened at the very beginning, Bank of America," said protester Perry McKnight. "We are going to the banks we already designated, with the people."
According to the City of Dallas, when protesters were ordered to get off the planters, one of them became aggressive and assaulted police.
Eight people were arrested. One is expected to be charged with assaulting a public servant and resisting arrest.

Wonder if the Dallas ACLU will show up to defend them in Court?
considering they are jobless lowlifes... couldn’t they take all their ‘savings’ (iow, what remains of this weeks welfare check) out via the ATM?
as for ‘people across the country’ taking their money out... oh please. stop trying to inflate it
They were there to protest and create trouble, and had nothing to do with closing any bank accounts. Buncha drama queens..if they closed their accounts on a non-busy day like Tuesday instead of a Saturday when almost everyone is doing their weekly banking.
“The national movement is called Bank Transfer Day...”
Well, you hippy scum never told sergeantdave of this “national movement.”
Bad on you, man.
Does anyone besides the hippy turd-eaters in Dallas know anything about this?
I would like to be informed, doggonnit. I’m “groovy, man!” and want to track all these new 1960’s hippy movements. I missed out on Haight-Ashbury and the free love movement ‘cause I was busy digging VC mud out of the M-16.
I want my hippy chick, man! Disease free, please.
Long live Mao, man! and all that.
Oops! Mao is deader than a doornail. Too bad for him and hoorah! for the good guys.
Next time, you hippy zero-IQ morons had best inform me that there’s a movement going on, man, or I’ll shove a semper fi bayonet up your rear end.
Long live Che!!!! Oops, another dead hippy icon.
