At least ten protesters were arrested today during OccupySF’s latest demonstration against corporate greed, according to police.

Protesters gathered to block the entrance to the Wells Fargo headquarters at 400 Montgomery St., keeping the bank closed for several hours.

An estimated 200 protesters showed up to rally against Wall Street and to call attention to the group’s various demands, including ending bank bailouts and ceasing tax breaks for the rich.
