Awesome video: Brian Moynihan and the rest of the Bank of America fat cats get mic-checked at the bank’s annual shareholder meeting this week.

Via YouTuber movetoaction:

One hundred shareholders mic check Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan after he abruptly closes the BofA shareholder meeting. For two and a half hours he faced an unceasing barrage of direct questions, getting increasing flustered by shareholders demanding that he answer people’s questions instead of brushing people off. He refused to meet with National People’s Action, Rainforest Action Network, and our allies after more than 100 attempts in the past several months to have a serious meeting about these issues.

Activist George Goehl on People Power                    

from BillMoyers.com

Bill Moyers talks with George Goehl, a co-organizer of  The 99% Spring, a national effort  to train 100,000 Americans to teach the country about income inequality in homes, places of worship, campuses and the streets. Goehl is executive director of National People’s Action, a network of grassroots organizations using direct action to battle economic and racial injustice.

Seems that some people who want the banksters to pay are taking matters into their own hands.

National People’s Action

, one of the more aggressive progressive advocacy groups, has been deeply involved in street protests against foreclosure fraud and corporate greed. And today, they escalated those actions. 600 activists with NPA took over a DC branch of Bank of America today, handing over a “tax bill” to the large banking institution that they believe has cost states billions through tax avoidance and reckless speculation

This is part of National People’s Action’s Make Wall Street Pay campaign.

Our country is facing a revenue crisis. There’s not enough money in our cities and states to support the investments needed to rebuild America. The good news is this: We know where the money is. While politicians might tell you differently, it’s not in Grandma’s pension. It’s not in the homes of families fighting off foreclosure. And it’s not in the pockets of American schoolchildren or schoolteachers.

It’s on Wall Street.

The big banks bankrupted our country. But we can rebuild America. And the big banks must pay their fair share.

Here are photos from today’s action.
