Occupy Activists Rally Outside Home of John Stumpf Wells CEO

Occupy activists rally outside home of Wells CEO

Organized theater played Russian Hill on Saturday – 1960s street theater updated with 21st century themes.

The setting was the base of the 14-story tower where one of the residents is John Stumpf, chief executive officer of Wells Fargo. The cast included people who say they are in danger of losing their homes, veteran housing activists and younger protesters loosely aligned with the almost 6-month-old Occupy movement.

Some people wore black shrouds or held cut-out figures depicting Stumpf; two carried an enormous “notice of default” aimed at Stumpf because of Wells Fargo’s alleged “record profits at the expense of low-income communities.” In an era when protests are plentiful, one organizer explained, it doesn’t hurt to shake up the repertoire every now and then.

Rest here…

    Hmmm. I wonder if he’ll care? It’s just ‘survival of the fitest’.

      Fictims of fraud = “deadbeats.” Deadbeats = antelopes and zebra.

      Bank shysters = “perpetrators of fraud.” Perpetrators of fraud = lions.

      That’s just the way things are – in this material world.

      Staying for one hour does not make for an impressive ‘movement’. He (Stumpf) would have just tossed it off as a minor interference to his day.
