Protest at Chase Bank: JP Morgan/Chase Greases the Wheels for British Petroleum

by R. Robertson (ruth [at] anewwayforward.org)
Members of organizations including A New Way Forward demonstrated in front of a Chase Bank branch in Palo Alto, California on June 26. JP Morgan Chase got $25 billion in government bailout money and they grease the wheels for British Petroleum (BP).

Chase is the chief depository bank for BP, which means that Chase essentially handles all the stock services and payouts for BP. Chase holds 27.74% of total ordinary issued shared capital.
