Wells Fargo's Latest Criminal Outrage: Opening Millions of Customer Accounts w/o Consent
A protest was held at the corporate headquarters of Well Fargo bank in San Francisco on October 26 calling for jailing the executives and managers who oversaw the illegal opening of two million accounts in customers' names without their knowledge as well as setting up credit card accounts. The Obama administration refuses to press criminal charges.

Speakers called for the jailing of Wells Fargo bankers for criminal fraud and for the expropriation of the bank and for it's transformation into a public bank for the people. A statement was released by a fired Federal OSHA Whistleblower Protection Program investigator and lawyer who was prevented from investigating the cases of Wells Fargo workers who had made OSHA complaints. His manager Joshua Paul and top officials of OSHA and the Department of Labor including Tom Perez illegally prevented an investigation of systemic corruption of the agency from taking place.
