Several hundred marchers took over the intersection of 7th and Figueroa Streets for a short while this afternoon. Also, about a dozen folks walked into a Bank of America branch, tried cashing an over-sized check for $673 billion, and were arrested when they refused to leave. This is the work of a group dubbing itself Refund California, which has been going after the banks and a few senior bankers. Still trying to figure out where this goes, if anywhere. I'm guessing the protesters are, too. Here are stories from the LAT and LA Weekly.
