On October 7th, hundreds of people marched from Santa Cruz Mission Plaza and demonstrated at national financial institutions in downtown, as part of Occupy Santa Cruz, a local movement in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street and the 800+ occupations taking place in towns and cities throughout the U.S. Demonstrators held signs and chanted outside Bank of America, Chase and Wells Fargo, and briefly marched on Soquel Avenue, Pacific and Mission Street.

• Stop Funding an Endless War, Invest in Community

This was such a fun march! See you all at the General Assembly today at 4 at the Courthouse (on the side facing soquel ave).
Yes, I was there at Friday's march . My favorite image is of two bank employees who were in their offices speaking with depositors. Both of these Wells Fargo employees as well as their customers gave me the "thumbs up" when I held up my sign that said "YOU are the 99%" How great is that!! AND my Local 521 SEIU supports the Occupy Santa Cruz movement!!
