Community, faith and labor organizations frustrated by what they see as unrestrained Wall Street greed will hold a series of events around the Twin Cities this week to continue spreading the message of the Occupy Wall Street movement and its local affiliate, Occupy MN. The local protest group took gathered at Government Plaza last Friday and has continued its peaceful protest since. 

Tomorrow at 11 a.m., the group TakeAction Minnesota will lead protestors from Government Plaza to Wells Fargo, with the goal of demanding the government debt reduction team known as the “Super Congress” reduce the deficit by raising taxes on banks and corporations. At 5 p.m. Tuesday evening, activists will rally at the Minneapolis Public Schools Office at 807 Broadway to ask the schools to move its accounts to community banks.

On Thursday, Oct. 14, The March and Rally to Save the American Dream will depart from Peavey Plaza at 11 a.m. and once again head to Wells Fargo to ask for banks to pay their fair share. The marchers plan to request a meeting with Wells Fargo executives. 

Other events are scheduled throughout the week in St. Paul and as-yet undetermined sites in Minneapolis.
