Foreclosure protest blocks intersection by US Bank

Some protesters from Occupy MN set up tents in a downtown Minneapolis intersection near the occupied Government Plaza. The intersection of 6th St. and 2nd Av. S. is by the US Bank headquarters. My wife happened to be passing and recorded some video. This was recorded on a phone in noisy conditions, so the sound is rough.

In this first video, she’s describing what she sees as she approaches the protest and walks around it. In the second, she interviewed one of the protesters in the tents. He’s explaining that they’re protesting banking practices like robo-signing and predatory lending.
