Senior and Disability Action and the Gray Panthers gathered outside the bank branch at noon, claiming that Wells Fargo is the leader in San Francisco foreclosures — many of which are happening to senior citizens and those suffering from disabilities.

Because of the protest, patrons trying to do their banking had to show proof of being a Wells Fargo member in order to gain entry to the bank.

The protest was otherwise peaceful and no arrests were made.
