  •  I was involved with Occupy vs. Wells Fargo events. (2+ / 0-)

    They had a really darling street theater event where a 'bride' and 'groom' divested their bank accounts from WF...with a great minister, to boot.  
    Props were right on target and simple: a bridal veil for the for the bride and a top hat for the groom.
    Good, short, to-the-point script.

    When a private guard attempted to kick us out of one of the banks (inside a Randall's grocery store) one of the customers said, 'let them finish. It's free speech.'
    I wanted to kiss him.
    I was honored to be the self-appointed matron-of-honor for the bride.

    (The Houston police let us in... not without some discussion and tweeking of signs and masks, but the private guard was antsy.
    In his defense these banks inside groceries here are robbed on a fairly regular basis.)
