Protesters shut down Bank of America
A few hundred protesters snarled traffic on K Street on Monday and shut down a Bank of America near Capitol Hill as part of an "anti-K Street" protest sponsored by a coalition of community groups and labor unions, reporter Krissah Thompson tells us. In the rain, members of the National People's Action network and an array of unions marched down the street behind a float depicting a large, sinister-looking bald banker holding the U.S. Capitol on puppet strings.
Dozens of protesters forced a Bank of America branch near the U.S. Capitol to close on Monday as part of an anti-K Street protest, The Huffington Post reports.
Protesters with the SEIU then went on to block an intersection in Chinatown. The protests were scheduled to take part throughout the day.
