Sit-in Protest at Bank of America

About 35 occupy protesters staged a sit-in at the Arcata Bank of America today. They entered the bank shortly after 2 pm and sat down and chanted om. They left peacefully after police arrived. Prior to that, it was a confusing day for Occupy Arcata. The encampment at city hall fell apart. In the morning several campers took their tents down, which led others to do the same. Rumors spread that there had been a raid. As the encampment weakened, the city took advantage and pushed for more stuff to be removed. Little remained by afternoon. Protesters said that they would regroup and reorganize.
