A group of activists with the anti-foreclosure group National People’s Action arrived at a JPMorgan Chase shareholder meeting yesterday in Columbus, Ohio, dressed like the legendary thief Robin Hood, ready to spook some bankers.
They were just a small splinter group that broke off from a crowd of about 1,000 people who swamped the meeting’s main entrance to protest the bank’s policies and alleged foreclosure fraud.
According to Huffington Post’s Zach Carter, several elderly protesters were maced by police amid the scuffle to keep activists away from bank shareholders.
A JPMorgan spokesman suggested to Carter that the whole affair may have been a publicity stunt for Capital One, which uses viking imagery in their credit card advertisements.
The activists insist it was not.
