I attended the protest and was observing what was going on. First, the police tipped the bank to our arrival through the text alerts either we need to switch to a coded alert system or just plan a duration strategy (remember occupy). What I mean if they are going to shut the doors for the afternoon why make them shut the doors for a week having them shut down costs money and PR. Finally we need to relate the bank bailouts in a comprehensive and cohesive form to the foreclosures. We need the comparison of giving our money the the banks (with nobody going to jail) while turning around and fraudulently evicting people from their houses. As we remember even Sheriff Marikkeamie(SP?) of San Francisco who said 85 % of the foreclosures were faulty paper work and his department would not enforce this stealing of peoples homes. This is why Ed Lee and crew (banksters) went after him with the spousal abuse case a strategy widely used by the oppressor by blackmail and child protective services especially with people of color.
