Occupy SF Plans to Take Over Wells Fargo without Getting Arrested

This ought to be a good show.

Occupiers have audacious plans to storm the Wells Fargo shareholders' meeting tomorrow afternoon and stop the financiers from making any more decisions that will more than likely hurt the 99 percent. The protesters say they'll literally take over the meeting and convene a "people's stakeholder meeting" of their own.

And they plan on doing all of this without getting booted out.

Occupy is holding a day-long seminar this afternoon at Justin Herman Plaza to teach protesters how not to get arrested at this takeover.

Bring food and your friends!

Here's how OccupySF explains its planned action:

Wells Fargo profits at the expense of our communities. America's biggest tax dodger has its tentacles in many different areas

of our lives: Wells Fargo leads the country in foreclosures and

evictions for profit. Wells Fargo is a predatory mortgage lender and

student loan shark. Wells Fargo is a prison immigrant detention

center profiteer. Wells Fargo is corrupting our democracy.

Pissing off Wells Fargo seems much more reasonable to us than pissing off commuters crossing the Golden Gate Bridge.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
