Protest At JPMorgan Annual Meeting In Ohio Leads To The Handcuffing Of At Least One Person, Eight Arrests

Tyler Durden's picture


Some time ago it was primarily the G7 meetings that drew the Molotov cocktails and the anarchists crowds. Now it is the annual meetings of the big banks as increasingly more people realize that it is not the toothless developed countries but the banks backing them that actually pull the strings. The Washington Post reports that "at least one person was handcuffed after a group of about 400 protestors marched up Chase’s property and placed a sign on a raft floating in a pond in the bank’s premises. The sign read: “Foreclosed: Chase sinks our economy. Annual shareholder meetings of large banks routinely draw protesters. However, security this year has been especially tight after Wells Fargo & Co.’s annual meeting on May 4 in San Francisco became a rowdy scene after hundreds protested outside. Inside the meeting, a group of shareholders demanded that the bank immediately stop foreclosures and waive principal for troubled home owners. The shareholders were escorted out of the meeting by police. Eight people were arrested for blocking entrances to the building." Perhaps it is too late for Dimon to use the Blankfein "doing god's work" excuse at this point. Or not. However it is unlikely that any such proclamation will be met with any more success than its first iteration.

More on this event which is sure to become a pervasive phenomenon at every bank meeting everywhere:

At least one person was handcuffed after a group of about 400 protestors marched up Chase’s property and placed a sign on a raft floating in a pond in the bank’s premises. The sign read: “Foreclosed: Chase sinks our economy.”

Police had each entrance blocked ahead of the meeting, as protesters gathered in the rain and cold chanting slogans such as “Make Banks Pay” and carried signs that said: “Chase gets rich, we lose homes, jobs, services.” At least 20 police cruisers circled the building.

Inside, several shareholders spoke out against the bank’s handling of mortgage foreclosures.

 “As a person of faith, my God believes you shouldn’t take advantage of people when they are down,” said Dawn Dannenbring of the community group Illinois People’s Action, addressing CEO Jamie Dimon. “Do you believe in the same God I believe in?”

Dimon answered: “That’s a hard one to answer.”

After another question on foreclosures, Dimon said: “We are doing everything we can to keep people in their homes that should stay in their homes.”

Sure he is: as reported previously the average duration of foreclosure in New York and Jersey has grown to a ridiculous 900 days, as banks do all they can to conduct REOs on their terms, which would mean not impairing the "MTM" value of impaired mortgages and thus have their books face a hit to its capitalization ratios. And while living mortgage free, all those "consumers" are urged to used their funds for such much more reponsible activities as buying up the latest Apple product and paying off their JPM credit cards.

Wait!!!  The shareholders were removed from the shareholder meeting by police?

I guess the predator-executives DO own the companies they "run", not the actual owners.  Wow!

it is sad to watch.. to be serious for a second.. no drama, no shrill for the shock and awe of it all..


we are watching the un-winding of the best system ever devised by man kind.. becuase of GREED! how could we let the masses be led so astray.. how could we ignore the effects of allowing ignorance to prosper un-hindered?


we all will suffer becuase of what we allowed to happen.


people wanted austerity.. well they are about to get it.. people wanted others to pull themselves up by their boot straps.. well let’s see how those same feel when they themselves are the ones pulling themselves up by thier boot straps.


when the stock market is 6,000.. now 4,000? because of the printing? no one will be the better for it. The ego of man trying to inflict upon another man a way of life.. when the 1st man's cup runeth over? really? well now suffer what you have wished upon others, that is your punishment.


anyone that chooses to ignore these words or allows themselves the luxury of denial will be the most effected by thier own actions.. seeing another suffer when you had well beyond what you needed, to only in the end cause yourself strife! Your children will suffer what you forced upon others. This fact you can no longer escape, the world is a different place.. the damage is done.


So CONGRATS!!! your childrens quality of life now suffers because of your spoiled egotistical tantrums. May your votes and financial support weigh heavily upon you and yours.


The Republican, wanna be conservative dream is here!


There will be no help.. for anyone.. for anything.. at any time.. in the foreseeable future. And this damn sure includes you and yours.. so you had better have enough to go around to take care of you and yours!


when your cup runeth over, the best you could do was support the demeaning of others? for any reason? it was the best you could do? cause harm, cause less to be available to others? You are a God Send! which God Sent You, I will let someone else help you figure out.

So at last, the people start to realise that Fascism isn't all about goosestepping and swastica's.


It's the merger of corporation and state my friends - agents of the state jump to protect the banks from the people.


Pandora's box has been opened - it's a shame America has taken so long to work this out - the Greeks have been complaining about it for 2 years now.


Austerity has NOTHING to do with Government spending - it's all about control and testing how much you can suppress people before they react.

Each time there is a crisis - they test again, the spiral is downwards to a world of total state control by the oligarths - not a nice world you are leaving for your children.

I'm suprised no one has screamed at them for completely anti-constitutional practices such as shorting silver and manipulting every market they can get their hands on using strong arm non-free tactics.

Then again, such protests only find one imprisioned shortly thereafter.

Have you taken a look at our prison system lately? People don't want to get locked up.

Reminds me of the Bill the Butcher speech about Fear.

The same rules apply. The elites know they can do whatever they want, whenever they want, to whomever they want. DSK getting charged with rape was a total fluke, a complete exception to the rule.

Or was it all part of a carefully orchestrated plan to take him down without having to risk an assasination?  A plan contrived by his foes within the elite.  Between his softening IMF stance, potential to lead socialists to pres of France, and his part in exposing the squid and the morgue's part in the Eurozone PIIGS disaster, the elites decided he had to go.  What better way than a media circus sting, busting him doing what they all know he does.

And his replacement is an ex US Treasury and Morgue guy himself!  I know eh, ya just can't make this stuff up!

Right, but what are they protesting?  How are they doing it?  The problem with the american predicament is that the lion's share of the time, those seeking reform are precisely the ones who benefitted from the immoral system and have yet to make apology for doing so...  they only get froggy when the shit goes south on them...  i.e. the gravy train ends.  This rings true for both top and bottom.

Wake me up when the protests turn into a simple desire for an opportunity (as equal as possible) to retain the fruits of one's labor.  Then, finally, the collective will have awoken to the concept of their salvation...  until that day, it will be nothing but begging and thievery by one class or another.

I feel exactly the same for german here is crowded with either socialists or sociopathic money-whores. Those few in between have gone into some form of hibernation.
My conclusion is: it has to get much worse, and we aint seen nothin yet.

What scares me futher is the fact that we in GER are doing many thing exactly like they do in the US, only with a 5-10y timelag. Which makes it even more ridiculous, as all those (un)intended consequences could be easily assessed/avoided.

But i guess we all know that, for quite some time now. Hold tight! We are in something t that will probably make the beginning of last century look like a picnic.

JPMorgan Chase Shareholder’s Meeting | Showdown in Ohio-Crossing the moat

Hundreds of people have gathered today to protest JP Morgan Chase shareholder’s meeting as part the Showdown in Ohio.  The crazy thing: the meeting is being held at the JP Morgan Chase McCoy Center is the second largest flat office building in the nation.  Only the Pentagon is larger.  And the building is surrounded by a moat!  So how do these homeowners, clergy members, unions members and more, cross the moat? They build a bridge!

You know, as much as I like the idea of rising up, that looks kind of sad. I'd bet not more than one person there understands what they need to rise up against. All they know is that they were victims of JPM's "greed."

If it were only that simple, they might be on to something. Instead, they are the ones that appear simple, relying on mindless slogans devoid of meaning, while completely missing the bigger picture.

Was there a single sign there implicating Freddie/Fannie or any other government agency? Or was it all merely JPM = Greed = bad?

Now, some might say this is still a positive development, but being so unfocused, I see it as creating a space for JPM to garner a bit of sympathy from the portion of the herd who believes that the protest is solely against capitalism (which with the greed focus, in part it is).

In other words, it plays well in both camps of this polarized, divide and conquer game.

At least they DID something. How can you criticize these people for trying to speak out for themselves against the same injustices you claim to abhor? Why don't you get off your fat ass and away from your computer and do something real outside the Matrix of your own arrogance? You said:

"If it were only that simple, they might be on to something. Instead, they are the ones that appear simple, relying on mindless slogans devoid of meaning, while completely missing the bigger picture."

Yeah, "...they might be on to something."

Like you? Sitting around poking at your computer judging others behaviors, intelligence, and motivation while dismissing their very real action and activism.

Here's a clue. Violence is a useful game for breaking things. Fixing things require cooperation.

Fat chance...  if bringing molotov cocktails to a protest means death, then there will be none given they're not as advantageous as other readily available weapons, e.g. firearms.  If we we're in Greece, sure...  if people were certain they would not be fired upon by police...  not so much in the U.S. 

We're essentially left with uber peaceful protest or ultra violent protest...  not much in between due to incentives and risk aversion...  and ultra violent protest ends up being actions by individuals given they can rarely convince other people to join due to the consequences...  e.g. Joseph Stack.

Yup.  And it will get more personal. Protesters will start showing up at the homes of these sociopaths, not some "public" space. It will be done stealthily.  More like injuns, not like redcoats.

Is this the exercise of free speech?  With no results, do bankster-hating-protesters now move on through the amendments in numerical order?

of course, the klepto-traitor elites will make sure their hired guns  are paid well enough to keep on keepin' on... whether Blackwater goons & private "citizen militias"   "protecting" DROWNED PROPERTY in New Orleans (after Katrina rains) by preventing Black flood  refugees from  crossing bridges into  "whites only" precincts... or cops & National Guard protecting Bildberg, G-20, and other elite cartel "how do divvy up the world's assets in secret & private" meetings, etc.

 (although MORAL in US MILITARY in Afghan is hitting ROCK BOTTOM from the accumulated affect of 2 decades of post- Cold War  treasonous GS/JPM/Fed/r's economic sabotage & "national security"  expanding warmongering, at least according to this USA Today report - )     

  And, because the Klepto-elites are not more competent than Hitler's 'elite'  "the bunker" crew,  they will probably get around to SABOTAGING  police, firefighter, and other govt. emergency workers' pensions, too...

Haha - last night on the radio I heard a commercial for a "security group" offering their services for the protection of private citizens as well as commercial entities. The punchline was "workplace safety for corporate downsizing activities". Great stuff - a new low...obviously they believe there is a market...

Didn't you notice Xe just got fined about 5% of their fee for making a private 800 man army for the Saudis? In direct [and third violation] of US law.

In the land of the Capitalist, we all know what effect 5% 'after the crime' penalties have. Fuck all.


Ak47 has been the most successful product of the 20th C, fyi. Children can use it, which means less down time when combatants get wasted.

At least the criminals at Xe are theoretically marketing to foreign sovereign states...

The commercial I listened to was directed at the wealth individuals of this country.

With regard to 5% penalty - if you are on a "cost plus" contract - which almost all M/I contractors are - how does any penalty matter? It's a joke...

As for the AK47 - Kalashnikov perceived himself as a patriot - no royalties for him.

...ah, a bridge to far, or was that a lone?

...beyond the cries of fools; now bum rushing people that are not their brothers keeper, whom they bought from and sold away their cover, for the sake of their own twisted temptation, can you not hear the Red Stripes dripping off Old Glory and into the BTFD Cup of Fornication which is overflowing with the labor of corruption?

''Earn it'' never crossed their minds, be it the bums crossing the bridge or the scums that established the bridge lone without labor.

Talk is cheap. Taking these bastards out is going to be expensive. We must remain mindful that corporations are now individuals. Lets get the ACLU to sue them in a class action - if all we get is the triple damages that would result from the illegal profits they have made by filing false claims  with HUD, defrauding and stealing real estate, and laundering drug money (now THAT one really opens a can of worms for damages in civil court), the we can take the bastards down with their own game. No need to fire any shots - I want these bastards to live long, long lives - as broke cripples in Cartagena.

You are is cheap.  I'm so sick and tired of hearing everyone (myself included,bitching online, and doing exactly nothing to change anything.  There are enough great and like minds on this site to get some kind of movement going that we can all work on together.  These fuckers have gotten away with too much for too long, and we need to do something to wake people up from this wicked slumber.  Sure, we're doing our part to stock up and BTFD, but lets do more.  What, specifically? I don't know, but lets debate some serious steps and get working on it.

These assholes belong in jail-- their time is coming.  The peasantry can only take so much... but maybe by then they'll be distracted with another war oh and this will be a doozy of one as the banks can pay some rogue element to run plenty of interference.  Then again, I could be just too suspicious.  In the end, what matters is more and more people waking up and doing something about the banksters/central banksters.
