"East Palo Alto It's Time to Represent!" shout East Palo Alto tenants and their supporters, including members of the Raging Grannies.

They rallied on Monday in front of a Wells Fargo branch in downtown Palo Alto. The demonstrators were protesting Wells Fargo’s pending arrangement with investment group Equity Residential, a company which has sued multiple California cities to invalidate local rent control laws, and funded a statewide ballot measure to end rent control in California.

The protesters marched from E. Palo Alto to the bank.
