The Occupy movement will be making a repeat appearance at the 2013 Tournament of Roses Parade, organizers and police said Monday.
A 15-foot-high float, with the "Monopoly" banker riding a red wagon, will wheel its way down the 5.5-mile route at the conclusion of the parade, organizers said. The banker will have strings attached to participants who are on the verge of losing their homes or have lost their homes in a foreclosure.
“It symbolizes the grip the banks have on individual homeowners,” said Carlos Marroquin, an organizer with Occupy Fights Foreclosures. “We’re protesting the foreclosure practices that continue to hurt millions of families.”
