Occupy Protesters Attempt To Crash Wells Fargo Shareholder Meeting in San Francisco

Wells FargoThe police are ready for this. Good luck. Reports the AP via the Washington Post:

Police were guarding the entrance to the annual meeting of Wells Fargo shareholders on Tuesday as protesters associated with the Occupy Wall Street movement geared up to crash the gathering.

Dozens of officers were stationed around the Merchant’s Exchange Building in the city’s Financial District in advance of the 1 p.m. meeting. Bank stockholders were asked to show certificates or other proof of ownership before being corralled past gates erected in front of the doors.

Many of the early arrivals represented community groups from across the country that purchased Wells Fargo stock so they would have a say in the bank’s practices.

Shareholder Mark Richmond, a 59-year-old Portland member of the group We Are Oregon, said he hoped he could voice his concerns specifically about predatory lending and home foreclosures. He said he expected some raucousness inside and outside the meeting.

      Small generally businesses pay lower wages to their workers, have more sexual harassment problems, and have more complaints filed against them in state labor boards.

      We only hear about the big businesses getting in trouble because everyone knows about Wal Mart and McDonalds, while only people in Your City know about Local Small Businesses.
