OccupySF Blocks Wells Fargo HQ; 11 Taken Away in Handcuffs

OccupySF protesters did more than yoga this morning. The group marched down Market Street and reportedly blocked the doors of the Wells Fargo Headquarters, slowing traffic through the Financial District and forcing employees to use the side doors.

According to news reports, the group started marching shortly after 7:30 a.m. near the Federal Reserve Building, where they have been camping out for weeks in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement in New York. Pledging to "foreclose the banks," some protesters blocked the Wells Fargo entrance at California and Montgomery streets.

The Chron reports that 11 activists were taken away in handcuffs. SF Weekly contacted the SFPD to confirm these details, but we have not heard back yet.

Cable car service has been suspended for now, until the crowds diffuse.

Check back for details.
