    Chicago protesters stage "die-in" at bank

    By Eric Johnson
    CHICAGO | Thu Oct 13, 2011 4:20pm EDT

    (Reuters) - A few hundred demonstrators protesting over unemployment woes targeted Bank of America on Thursday, with 30 protesters entering a bank building in Chicago and laying down in a "die-in" before heeding police orders to leave.

    "Being arrested wasn't part of the plan today," said Elizabeth Parisian, a coordinator for Stand Up! Chicago, a coalition of labor, religious and civil rights groups.

    A contingent of police kept some 250 protesters from clogging sidewalks in Chicago's busy financial district. One protester became embroiled in a vociferous argument with a group of traders but there was no violence or arrests.

    Earlier this week, five women were arrested for trespassing at the same Bank of America branch after dumping trash collected from foreclosed homes.

    It isn't what they accomplish. It's how GOOD it makes them feel to protest and then to "make the news".

    Moonbats don't look for the answer that works, just the one that makes them feel good.

    They should be protesting the dozens of gang and drug related shootings which are decimating the city. Now that might be something worthwhile. But they are strangely quiet on real, pressing issues in favor of this "street theater".

    Why is it always Bank of America?

    Why not Chase? Wells Fargo? Citibank?
