OCCUPY FIGHTS FORECLOSURES activists joined ACCE and disrupted Well Fargo CEO John Stumpf's Speech. Wells Fargo CEO was 25 minutes into his speech when he was interrupted by a homeowner who approached him and ask him why her home of 19 years was scheduled to sale at an auction. He was shocked and immediately was escorted by security. About 75 activists took over the bankers meeting and held a press conference. Bankers present were in disbelief and shocked as to how quickly the meeting ended and Mr. Stumpf walked away from the homeowner.
During the action, Occupy Fights Foreclosures made a call to the CEO's office to demand that Ms. Harolyn Rhue's case be fully investigated and that Wells Fargo take responsibility for the damage they have caused to Harolyn, a disabled woman. Ms. Rhue endured 3 years of trying to modify her loan just to have Wells Fargo sell her home to investors causing her to lose $300,000 of equity. Harolyn owed around $200,000 on her mortgage and her property was valued around $500,000. We are demanding that Wells Fargo take responsibility and reverse the damage they have caused to Ms. Harolyn Rhue.
Watch the protest scenes!

Ms. Rhue needs your help! Please, tell wells fargo that an eviction would cause great harm and would negatively impact her already serious health condition that has been altered by the wrongful foreclosure of her home.
HERE IS A STATEMENT BY WELLS FARGO REGARDING TODAYS ACTION
Vickee Adams, a Wells Fargo spokesperson, wrote in an e-mailed statement to The Huffington Post that while the bank respects individuals’ rights to express their opinions, the protest was unproductive.
“We are very disappointed in the actions protesters took at the Retail Banking Conference today that disrupted John Stumpf's presentation and the entire conference,” Adams wrote. “This type of behavior damages efforts for productive dialogue and opportunities to work together to reach solutions.”
