OCCUPY Buffalo actions

posted September 13: Part one of video of Occupy Buffalo volunteers speaking at City Hall on S11 about the City divesting the remaining 90% of its funds from Chase bank and investing it instead into a local bank. Buffalo is the 2nd poorest City in the country (bumped up from #3 last year). Besides Chase being a megabank that received a bailout at the taxpayer's expense it has a corporate office in Buffalo but not even one branch location and employs less than 20 people. So far 45 million has been divested but there is still about 450 million more to go so we will not stop until a full divestment has been achieved.
