Today HSBC testified before the Senate regarding its practices of money laundering for Hezbollah, Hamas, Mexican Drug Cartels, and Iran (seriously).
Meanwhile Occupy Kong Kong is facing increasing pressure from HSBC. From Allison Kilkenny:
Long after the Occupy camps at Zuccotti Park in Manhatttan and St. Paul’s Cathedral and Finsbury Park in London were evicted or disbanded, an encampment in an unlikely location defiantly remains.
For nine months, protesters in Hong Kong have been occupying an open-air plaza beneath the Asian headquarters of HSBC in Central, Hong Kong’s financial district. Many in the city have expressed surprised that the bank allowed the encampment to remain for so long, but the tense truce between HSBC and activists from the Occupy movement is now at an end...
Hong Kong’s wealth gap now exceeds that of Singapore, the United Kingdom and Australia as well as other major cities notorious for inequality such as Washington and New York City.
Clearly HSBC should not be protested against - it's going to distract them their money laundering!
