When the five activsts and a group of about thirty supporters delivered the petition articulating their demand, the bank locked down the building's main enterance. The activists peacefully sat down in front of the doors and refused to leave until the requested information was disclosed. The bank instead chose to have them arrested. The charge was "Failure to Disperse from an Unlawful Assembly" and the five are currently in custody with bail set at $5,000.
