Occupy Oakland deposited $20,000 in a Wells Fargo Bank just days after vandalizing a Well Fargo branch during a large downtown street demonstration. On Wednesday, 4 Nov, one Oakland Wells Fargo branch had windows smashed by what was described as mostly peaceful demonstrators.
An Occupy statement said the money only will be with Wells Fargo temporarily while they work to establish an account with a credit union or community bank. Protesters said it was the easiest way to access the money to bail out people from jail.
Ruben Pulido, a Wells Fargo spokesman, said,
the move demonstrates that Occupy Oakland recognizes the value and service the bank provides its customers.
