Continuing its focus on the major banking institutions and their relationship to the 99%, Occupy Santa Cruz has been conducting a variety of bank related actions. On Saturday, January 7, the group held a 'Move Your Money' demonstration outside of Chase bank at the corner of Ocean and Water streets, and currently a home in foreclosure is being occupied by the group with its owner on the Westside of Santa Cruz.

On Saturday, the home in foreclosure was used by Occupy Santa Cruz as the meeting location for its foreclosure working group, and occupiers have been cleaning up the home's backyard, preparing it for tents and more occupiers. The home's kitchen will soon be available for those wishing to cook for Occupy Santa Cruz, and the home's living room will be available to host Occupy Santa Cruz working group meetings. The location of the home will be announced publicly soon.

Approximately a dozen community members attended the Move Your Money demonstration at Chase bank on Saturday. In addition to waving signs in front of the bank, members of Occupy Santa Cruz handed out fliers that listed the phone numbers and addresses of several local community credit unions.
