Occupy MN: Protesters block streets outside Wells Fargo Center [VIDEO]

In a spur of the moment decision by organizers, 20 members of the group who'd already committed themselves to getting arrested sat in the middle of the intersection of 6th Street and Marquette, blocking traffic, while the rest of the marchers swirled around them. Minneapolis police directed traffic and milled around the edges of the protest as the marchers attempted to send a delegation into the bank building. They were repeatedly rebuffed, so the protesters remained seated in the intersection, chanting and listening to speakers.
