Bank of America employees are being told to be careful Tuesday as housing activists and Occupy protesters gear up to take over foreclosed homes and empty lots and help defend families facing eviction in at least 25 cities.
"Your safety is our primary concern, so do not engage with the protesters," said a bank memo issued Tuesday.
The move by activists is part of a bid to re-energize the grassroots movement and put the spotlight on the ongoing housing crisis.
In response, bank officials reportedly sent out a memo telling their employees to be extra careful, and even referred to a specific story on occupyourhomes.org that features a Bank of America customer they're "researching."
Elsewhere across the country Tuesday:
- Occupy Hartford protesters told to vacate
- Police clear out New Orleans camp
- Housing and 'Occupy' activists take aim at foreclosed homes, empty lots
