On the 9th of March, activists showed up outside the Wells Fargo bank
branch at Ga Ave and T street to give out fliers. Every Friday there are protests or outreach sessions outside Wells Fargo branches as a project of Occupy DC's Criminal Justice project.
At about 6 PM, a
police "jump out squad" started searching three men about a block away,
then over a dozen cop cars responded to a fight that may have been a
diversion to protect the original targets of the police.
The fliers given out emphasized the role of Wells Fargo in investing in
the GEO Group's private prisons. The folks giving out the fliers warned
that depositor's money would be diverted into paying billions in fines
Wells Fargo is paying for illegal foreclosures.
People were also told face to face that Wells Fargo, by paying to lock
up Black and Brown men and women, is literally investing in slavery,
