Occupy Brainerd protests at Wells Fargo branch


About 75 people participated in a peaceful demonstration on a Washington Street sidewalk in front of the Wells Fargo Brainerd branch Saturday afternoon.

Terry Sluss, an Occupy Brainerd organizer, said the group did have two counter-protesters who sat in their vehicles and watched, but in general, the protesters received a lot of positive support by passing motorists, Sluss said.
