This weekend, a few Bank of America protesters in Santa Cruz, CA, attempted to enter a local branch to close their accounts. Only problem was, according to a BofA employee, “you can’t be a protester and a customer at the same time.”
While the BofA staffer threatened to call 911 on these obviously dangerous criminals, the protesters, who had sat down quietly in the bank’s waiting area, offered to take their signs outside if they would just be allowed to close their accounts.
After the, admittedly shouty, camera operator is ejected from the bank, the women who tried to close their account remained to discuss the matter. One women says they were told they could come back the next day without signs if they wanted to close their bank.
