Economic protests continue throughout the U.S.
Economic protests continued in various cities throughout the U.S. on Wednesday.
In San Francisco Wednesday morning, eleven people were arrested during an anti-Wall Street rally in front of Wells Fargo Bank headquarters, police said. About 200 protesters surrounded the bank, including a side entrance that building employees appeared to be entering and exiting through. That entrance was being kept clear with the help of police.
In New York, protesters planned to gather at the headquarters of JP Morgan Chase, where they were expected to continue to decry the expiration of the state's 2 percent "millionaires' tax" in December. A march on Tuesday, past the homes of wealthy residents, marked the first time the movement has singled out individuals as part of the 1 percent they say are getting rich at the expense of the rest of America. -- Associated Press (34 images)

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.
