An attempt by two-dozen protesters to be disruptive near the site of the Democratic National Convention has been largely ignored by the police.

During a march though Charlotte, N.C., Sunday, about 25 marchers sat down in front of the headquarters of Bank of America and locked arms. They had the phone numbers of lawyers written on their arms.

Cops standing nearby took no action. The group sat for about 10 minutes then got up and moved on.

About 600 marchers carried signs and banners, banged drums and chanted on a sunny afternoon as part of the March on Wall Street South. Their numbers were a fraction of the thousands that organizers expected for what had been planned as the week's biggest protest.
