Jesse Jackson, protesters take over bank lobby

Jesse Jackson, protesters take over bank lobby

The Rev. Jesse Jackson and a group of anti-Wall Street protesters have briefly taken over the lobby of a bank headquarters in downtown Atlanta.
The group sang protest songs during the hourlong takeover Friday at the SunTrust Bank building.
Adrian Harden of Jackson's Rainbow-PUSH coalition says the occupiers were protesting economic conditions and foreclosure rates across the United States.
After the protest, Jackson said the Occupy movement should not be about clashes with mayors and police.
Occupy Atlanta protesters had camped in a downtown park until police ordered them out last week.
