Occupy movement protesters descended upon Bank of America’s Charlotte, North Carolina headquarters today to disrupt the annual shareholder’s meeting.The protest, which began this morning, is wrapping up right now. But at its height, it looked pretty lively.

The demonstrators got pretty creative with the demonstration—showing up with huge balls of debt and fish hooks to dangle doughnuts in front of the police.

We followed the action via Twitter, and wanted to share the photos we saw.

Hundreds of protesters gathered in the streets of Charlotte to march on the bank.

The protest looked huge, for Charlotte.

It might not be Zuccotti Park, but protestors were aplenty.

Like Occupy protests everywhere, they had their own music.

According to Twitter user @OccupyEye, protesters were chanting 'DEBT FOR THE MANY, PROFIT FOR THE FEW, BANK OF AMERICA WE'RE COMING' FOR YOU.'

The giant ball of DEBT was attached to a protester representing the 99%.

Creative signs like this Bank VS. America one was plastered everywhere.

The protesters passed around this massive inflatable earth ball.

And they had a giant 'bank exec' puppet. We can't figure which exec it is though. Any guesses?

Here's Brian 'big banks' Moynihan and Ms. 99 per cent getting ready to box as part of the protest, according to Charlotte Observer reporter Ely Portillo.

The protestors amassed in front of the Bank of America building.

Police on bicycles followed the demonstrators.

Seriously. Check out all those bikes!

Twitter user @OccupyEye reports that protesters held signs up toward the building for shareholders to see.
