More than 300 protesters, mostly labor union and social activists, marched on the Wells Fargo Center in downtown Minneapolis on Friday afternoon, eventually sitting down and blocking the intersection of Sixth Street and Marquette Avenue next to the building.
They held signs saying, “Don’t Foreclose on the American Dream” and “Wells Fargo Pay Your Fair Share,” and chanted, “Big banks must stop” and “The people, united, will never be defeated.” The protest coincided with an upswing of anti-corporate activism across the country, generally called the Occupy Wall Street movement.
The Rev. Grant Stevensen, pastor of St. Matthew’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in St. Paul, told the group before the march that he had heard from too many people who were ashamed because they were losing their homes to foreclosure.
“Shame is how the powerful have always stayed in power,” Stevensen said.
