Most of you have heard the story already. Larry Delassus died in court trying to fight Wells Fargo's abuse. They made a typo, and even after admitting that they'd made a mistake, foreclosed on him and threw him out in the street the day that he got out of the hospital. Here's the full story:

Larry Delassus, who died fighting our fight, with friendsWells Fargo Typo Victim Dies In Court

Larry died fighting. But all of us -- every one of us who is not rich, who doesn't get million-dollar bonuses, and who abides by the rules because it's the right thing to do -- have also been victims of Wells Fargo's executives and the other banksters that have drained our country, putting our money and our nation's wealth in their pockets. Larry died fighting our fight.

On March 19, Wells Fargo will celebrate it's 161st birth day. But Larry won't have any more birthdays because of them. On that day, Larry Delassus Day, I'm going to paint a sign and stand in front of that awful, inhuman monster and tell everyone I meet what they did. I'm going to tell everyone that I can about their filthy greed and how they are destroying our lives and our country.

Please don't let Larry be forgotten. Don't let his death be in vain. Stand up for yourselves, for your children, and for your country. Please join me on March 19, in front of your nearest Wells Fargo Bank

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
