Protesters enter NYC bank buildings before rally

Protesters enter NYC bank buildings before rally

Noisy, sign-bearing protesters have taken over bank building lobbies in New York City in a prelude to a Wall Street rally.
Hours before the scheduled rally, more than 100 people entered a midtown building housing JPMorgan Chase offices along Manhattan's Park Avenue on Thursday afternoon. They handed a letter to a building worker and chanted "Bust up big banks!" and "People power!"
A half-hour later, they were calmly escorted outside by police.
The protesters then walked a few blocks and crowded into a Wells Fargo and Wachovia building lobby. Police arrived on horseback as curious office workers watched the scene from their windows.
The banks did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
