Minneapolis, Minnesota

This is the 20th day of the occupation of Minneapolis as part of the Occupy Wall Street movement that has spread to other cities around the United States and other countries. Protesters have maintained a 24×7 presence near the Hennepin County Government Building downtown. The county provided an open air tent to sleep under, but they do not allow the protesters to create any other form of shelter.

Today protesters went across the street to the headquarters of US Bancorp, otherwise known as US Bank. Along with issues such as opposing government funded bank bailouts, the protesters spoke out against bank mortgage lending and foreclosure practices. There’s also a national movement to encourage people to close their corporate bank accounts and move their money to local banks or credit unions by November 5. Another protest is planned then.

Statue of Blessed Geertruyt Vanoosten in front of the Old Church.

Born to a poor family, and when she was old enough Gertrude began to work as a servant to a rich family in Delft. She was engaged, but was jilted by her betrothed. She then joined the Beguine convent. Received the stigmata and the gift of prophesy. The surname van Oosten (of the East) is thought to have been a nickname given her due to her frequent repetition of the hymn Het daghet in den Oosten (The Day Breaks in the East).

Old Church started with a wooden church in 1050, which grew out to be a 75 meter high building with a gothic tower. It holds several mausoleums and graves of important people.
