    Occupation of Financial District in San Francisco

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     dinalee shot these pictures and video yesterday of protestors occupying San Francisco's financial district, in the spirit of the "Occupy Wall Street" demonstrators in New York. 'The protesters want the banks to know that the ongoing foreclosures, and the constant raising of bank fees are unacceptable,' she said. 'They want Wall Street to pay for the crimes they committed, and they want the Federal government to do its job.'
    - jmsaba, CNN iReport producer

    Groups and unions including the SEIU and the Refund CA Coalition held a protest in San Francisco on Sept 29 to make public their demands or their actions will be escalated in the coming months. This protest included a sit-in of Chase Bank Branch in San Francisco, that not only disrupted business, it made every person who passed them aware of their demands, "Big banks crashed our economy and destroyed  our communities. Budget cuts threaten our schools, libraries, and  social services. We bailed out the banks. Now they need to pay."

    The pics and video are from that protest.
