Boston Bank of America Sit-In Draws Thousands of Foreclosure Victims, Supporters

Yesterday in Boston, a huge group of protesters (reportedly between 1,000 and 3,000) descended on Bank of America's Massachusetts headquarters as part of the ongoing New Bottom Line Campaign effort to hold Wall Street accountable for the havoc it's wreaked on communities around the country.

A total of 24 people were arrested at the action. One of them was Carolyn Grant, who, according to the campaign, "has been fighting foreclosure since another financial giant, Wells Fargo, reneged on the family's loan modification agreement."

Here are a few photos and a video of the action, via the New Bottom Line Campaign:
