Police handcuffed and removed about 13 protesters from the Bank of America at Monarch Place early Monday afternoon as a crowd of fellow protesters grew outside.
The protest started earlier in the day when about 100 people gathered at Morris and Central streets to protest bank foreclosures.
The growing group marched downtown to the Bank of America
Five of the protesters, already inside the bank as fellow protesters converged outside, sat down at a pre-arranged signal and refused to leave. Others blocked the bank entrances.
Police Commissioner William J. Fitchet said about 13 the protesters involved with the sit-in and the blocking of bank doors were arrested without incident and charged with trespassing.

It is a real bitch when you “buy” a house, and don’t make the payments. Totally unfair, I tell ya!!!
If I were the President and the election planners of the Democrat party’s 2012 episode....I’d start to think about what happens to the unhappy campers when a doomed election occurs.
It is hard for us to understand how it is that the banks got a trillion dollars in bailouts and people still loose their homes. Regardless of how risky the loans were, the bottom line is the banks got bailed out at taxpayer expense and still those people who pay taxes have seen no reduction in any part of their mortgages.
I may not be articulating this correctly.
I agree with you complaint, but what about all the people who had been paying their mortgages, but have lost their jobs or had their hours cut and could no longer pay their bills at 100%. What about them? What was the bailout suppose to do? Why can't the banks work with them?
When banks are paying 1% on savings, have had all their bad debts bought by the taxpayer, they have room to negotiate to keep honest hard workers in their homes.
and the bloodsuckers charge 24% or more on CC balances and
farm out customer ‘assistance’ to ‘Chad’ over in Mumbai.
I thought all calls went to “Peggy”. LOL
Am I starting to make myself clear?
I expect things to get real bad next spring and summer.
Now, I might add, my business is booming, just the volume of my firewood sales are up 400% plus since 2005. I will do well over 1 million cords of hardwood fire wood this year. Unfortunately, my business is the exception. But you would not want to see my diesel fuel bill.
“...What was the bailout suppose to do?..”
Not what it was reported to have been for. It was money stolen to buy votes and power. Look at how much money Obama has massed for the election — who do you think owns those dollars? Yes, the tax payer who is paying for, and will be paying for the “bail out” for generations to come. Bank negotiations work when there is work to be had — the POS in the Oval Office has deliberately destroyed our economy for empowerment and hate. There will be no replacement of the millions of jobs he has destroyed and keeps driving offshore — not until he is gone and we again have a REAL president who cares about, and does not hate, America.
Those who laugh at and ridicule the OW crowd do so at their own peril.
Wait till those middle class folk who have lost their homes join in and start refusing to surrender their homes. Ow well, it is still safe out here in the country especially in timber country. I find more and more reasons my family and I not to go to cities.
