Occupy L.A. group protests in front of Pasadena bank

September 28, 2012

Around 80 Occupy L.A. protesters demonstrated in front of a OneWest bank in Pasadena Friday afternoon, police said.

The protesters showed up around 2:15 p.m. in front of a branch on 155 North Lake Avenue and stayed for about 45 minutes, said Pasadena police Lt. Cheryl Moody.

The group then moved to a home at the 700 block of South San Rafael for 30 minutes. About five to 10 police officers monitored the protest, said Moody.

According to Occupy L.A.'s website, the Pasadena demonstration was one in a series of events this weekend to mark the group's one-year anniversary and protest home foreclosures. The group launched Sept. 23 in downtown L.A.'s Pershing Square.
