Seattle focus: WaMu/Chase

Published Apr 8, 2009 1:59 PM

Demonstrators marched through downtown Seattle on April 4 with signs saying “Bail out people, not the banks!” The spirited demonstration received much support from passersby. The protest started at WaMu/Chase bank. Speakers pointed out that the bank pillaged the country with subprime loan foreclosures and has now been taken over by JPMorgan Chase. The demonstration also marched on the Federal Reserve Bank and then to Westlake Center for a rally. This groundbreaking march was organized by BAYAN-USA and the International Action Center, which have formed a chapter of the Bail Out the People Movement. It was shown on KING-TV News.
