Occupy Seattle, Ballard style

This may be the 99 percent speaking out at the ground level in its truest form.

A man who gave his name only as David, got up on a Sunday morning to put this sign on this Chase bank branch at Northwest 56th Street and 22nd Avenue Northwest.

“It’s the same message as Occupy Wall Street, on a neighborhood level,” he said. “We are encouraging people to take their money out of the big banks and put it in local banks and credit unions.

“We will do our best to embarrass Wall Street any way we can.”
