Sat Oct 8 2011 (Updated 10/24/11) Occupy Santa Cruz Demonstrates Outside Major Banks
Occupy Santa Cruz Marches on Banks Approximately 150 supporters of Occupy Santa Cruz marched on banks the afternoon of October 7th. The march wound its way through the downtown, and stops were made at Chase, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo. Protesters attempted to gain entry in order to close their bank accounts as a group, but even though it was normal business hours, all three of the establishments visited had locked their doors to prevent the group from entering.

The march began at Mission Plaza at 3:30pm, and shortly after the protesters returned they learned that the SCPD wanted them out of the park by 8am on Saturday. The group decided to move their location to the County Courthouse lawn on Water Street, and by 9:30 most of those interested in staying the evening had made their way over. After setting up canopies and unloading some supplies, at least ten Santa Cruz County Sheriffs arrived and stated that the protesters could not set up any sort of camp there.

A second march was held on October 12th.
