Occupy Atlanta group, Jesse Jackson take over bank building lobby; plaza shot down
ATLANTA (AP) ' Occupy Atlanta protesters have moved into the lobby of SunTrust Bank headquarters in downtown Atlanta and officials have shut down the property's plaza.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson joined about 30 protesters who entered the lobby near closing time on Friday. The plaza was then shut down.
Adrian Harden of Jackson's Rainbow/PUSH coalition said the occupiers are protesting economic conditions and foreclosure rates across the country.
The protesters sang protest songs. Workers are being let out of the bank building.
Occupy Atlanta protesters camped in downtown Atlanta's Woodruff Park until they were ordered out last week by police.
