Two hundred protesters marched from their camp-out site in a park on the edge of downtown and culminated at the Fountain Square headquarters of the bank. The protesters shouted “Banks got bailed out. We got sold out.” and handed out flyers to people passing.
“We are concerned about the tremendous power of banks and corporations over our political system and society,” Dan La Botz, a member of the group’s action committee, said.
The Occupy Wall Street protests that have gone on for nearly a month have spread to other cities, with several new protests in Dayton and Cincinnati in the past week.
The Dayton protesters chanted slogans, handed out flyers, and held up signs in a peaceful rally.
