SEATTLE Protesters gathered outside Chase Bank s downtown Seattle headquarters Wednesday, calling on banks and wealthy CEOs to do more to help the struggling economy. Organizers say 11 of them were arrested.
Dozens of people marched to Third Avenue and University Street, carrying signs reading Guilty as charged, Where's my bonus? and No more tax breaks.
The Chase Bank protest in Seattle was being echoed at Chase branches across the state, including Spokane, Olympia and Vancouver.
The protest was in conjunction with what organizers called the Showdown at Suncadia. Members of the Association of Washington Business were holding a policy summit at the Suncadia Resort near Cle Elum and protesters vowed to be there.
Organizers say they want Wall Street banks and big corporations to pay their fair share to fix the economy.
