Here's something those newly evicted Occupy protesters can do with themselves.

This evening, bitter folks will gather around Bank of America in San Francisco to protest the bank's three-day loan modification customer outreach event. Specifically, the "struggling families," aka protesters, will be there to remind everyone of BofA's poor customer relations.


While they are there, protesters plan to speak with other borrowers at the event in hopes that they too will come to and realize Bank of America has "horrendous practices."

You can expect to hear from Merrie Jo and Etzel Musni, whose home will be auctioned off on Oct. 15, despite the fact that BofA is still accepting their checks.

"This is called "dual tracking", an unethical practice that as of January

2013 will be illegal. But for now, the Musnis, their children and their

grandchildren are at risk of losing their home," organizers said.

So here are the details: BofA Homeowners in Foreclosure, Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE), Occupy Bernal, and folks from Occupy Noe will meet at 5 p.m. at the Hyatt, 5 Embarcadero Plaza.

  • Permanent Residents

    San Francisco is not just skin deep to these folks — it's a permanent resident of their bodies and souls. They may be scattered far and wide — everywhere from Bernal Heights to Brooklyn, El Paso, Tokyo, and beyond — but the one thing these self-defined San Franciscans all share is a deep commitment to the city by the Bay.
