22 Demonstrators Protesting Foreclosures Outside Chase Arrested
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police have arrested 22 demonstrators who staged a protest against home foreclosures outside a downtown Los Angeles branch of Chase bank.
Detective Gus Villanueva says there were no injuries to demonstrators or police during the noon-hour protest that blocked the entrance to the building lobby while other supporters marched on a sidewalk.
Villanueva says the protesters will be cited for trespassing and released.
The demonstrators included people facing foreclosure, homeowner rights advocates and labor leaders. Some are wearing signs that say “Save Homes Arrest the Wall Street Criminals.”
