Occupy supporters and students marched Wednesday through the streets of the San Francisco Financial District, storming into a bank and shouting slogans as they tried to set up camp in the lobby.
The arrests came after about 100 demonstrators rushed into a Bank of America branch, chanting “money for schools and education, not for banks and corporations.”
Police officers in riot gear cuffed the activists one-by-one as hundreds more demonstrators surrounded the building, blocking entrances and exits.
According to police, 95 were arrested. Authorities said they were taken to jail, cited and released. No injuries were reported.
