The group of protesters that gathered outside Wells Fargo CFO Tim Sloan's home Thursday night were within their rights to protest once they moved within a buffer of 75 feet from the property line and all but one did so, resulting in her arrest.
The group assembled to protest Wells Fargo’s refusal of a loan modification for a woman with cerebral palsy, Peggy Mears, the Refund California organizer for Alliance California for Community Empowerment (ACCE), told Patch.
“The bank refuses to work with her,” said Mears. “They’ve evicted her from her home twice, she refuses to leave, so she wanted to come to Tim Sloan’s house today to give Tim Sloan a check since the bank won’t to take the check and ask him to let her stay in her home. It’s only fair.”
