(I’ll tell you, I’ve yet to see one of the many commercials for Meg Whitman for Governor – I guess they don’t have political ads sponsoring Glee, or I’m able to scroll right through them on my VHS, a kind of analog DVR that was popular before you were born. But I’ve seen a few vids against her on the YouTube and, frankly, I didn’t like the claymation one as I thought it was a bit cruel. However, this Queen Meg parody is looking pretty good, so that’s nice. And I’ll tell you, you know who doesn’t like this kind of mockery about queens and royalty and couldyousaysenatorinsteadofma’am? Other Female Electeds of every political stripe, that’s who. They don’t truck with this crap. They consider this kind of thing anti-female, theywouldneversaythataboutamanwouldthey. But you won’t ever hear those beefs, so I thought I’d tell you. Moving on…)

Well the arrestees had already been hauled away by the time I passed by the global warming protest in the Financial District at California and Kearny yesterday. So that left about 50 to contiune the rally until 2:30 PM. By that time, there were more cops in the area than protesters.
The kids don’t like banks funding projects, particpating in carbon exchanges and opposing legislation – thoses are the beefs. Anyway, here’s the big site that explains why they went after BofA on November 30th and here are a few local accounts. The Chevron HQ on Market is the next target so look out on Pearl Harbor Day,

A “parachute” the protesters played with. At least one ‘chutist was a passerby who joined in with glee.
After the arrests, there were cops everywhere, all around the building:
See you next time.
This is the scene at Fell and Broderick, right across the street from the makeshift shrine of fallen pedestrian Melissa Dennison. It seems the Bank of America Buena Vista Branch #0269 suffered a Halloween night attack from people dressed in black who broke numerous large windows and an ATM.
Apparently, the assault was designed to send a message to the “money-wielding fucks” and “little Eichmanns” who work inside. Deets below.
All cleaned up and waiting for repair:

The scene on Halloween night. The IndyBay kids would like to foreclose on BofA:
(Leave the hammer, take the cannoli from the nearby Falletti’s Market)
“SF Bank of America trashed on Halloween night!!!
“On Halloween night some people dressed in black at the corner of Fell and Broderick in San Francisco redecorated a Bank of America, trashing the ATM, smashed about 15 windows, and posted a banner reading “FORECLOSED“. We felt the dark creatures that dwell inside from 9 to 5 could use some more privacy, and at least for a couple days experience a more “cave like” home while they put families out on the street for problems that banks started. The boarded windows fit quite nicely (see pictures). This building will hopefully in the future be used for something more useful like a food co-op house, a clinic, or at least a place for people to sleep when it gets cold outside. Until then these money-wielding fucks will just have to take the harassment.”
The bank branch itself is open for business, as well the ATMs at the back near Faletti’s – they escaped the wrath of the Men in Black.
On It Goes…
