Members of the Peninsula Peace and Justice Center will lead an "Occupy Palo Alto" event tomorrow (Saturday, Nov. 5) at noon, beginning at King Plaza in front of Palo Alto City Hall.
According to a press release from the Center, participants will take a "tour of shame" in downtown Palo Alto, walking past the local offices of Citibank, Wells Fargo, Bank of America and Chase -- the so-called "big four" national banks targeted as symbols of corporate greed and power. In front of each bank, information will be given about its business practices.
The event will be held as part of the ongoing national "Occupy Wall Street" protests. It is also being held in recognition of Nov. 5 being declared "Move Your Money Day," when all are encouraged to close their bank accounts with large financial institutions and move their accounts to local banks and credit unions, the release states.
After the walking tour, participants will return to King Plaza for an open-mic "speak out."
