In an email released Wednesday night, Occupy Minneapolis representatives say the protesters, 3 total, were arrested while demanding negotiation from US Bank headquarters for homeowners in foreclosure.
“We are disappointed that US Bank chose to ignore thousands of signatures and their customers cries for help as the foreclosure continues to rip apart our communities. Today they decided they would rather have peaceful demonstrators arrested than sit down and work in good faith to find a solution,” said activist Ben Egerman.MORE NEWS: WCCO Saturday Morning Links: May 21, 2022
