CHARLOTTE--Protestors gathered early at Frazier Park, just outside of uptown Charlotte.
They organized their signs and their message.
"We bought our house in 2000 with many hopes," said protester Sylvia Sanchez.
Sanchez is on the verge of losing her home to Bank of America. Her family spent thousands of dollars fitting the house for their daughter Jessica, who is disabled.
“They told us if we don't pay $20,000 dollars by September 14 they will initiate foreclosure," said Sanchez.
Stories like Sanchez's were heard many times over at Sunday's protest.
"Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Duke Energy's interest far outweigh the interest of the working class," said LABOR's Cindy Foster.
Crowds were estimated at about 700, far fewer than the thousands promised. Large groups included “March on Wall Street South” and “No Papers No Fear” riders.
Groups stopped at the Bank of America and Duke Energy buildings to air their frustrations with the companies.
They were granted permits to walk the three-mile route through uptown Charlotte, starting and ending at Frazier Park.
“First Amendment says the people have the right to assemble peacefully. It doesn't say you have to march in a certain route, have certain signs," said protestor John Deenie.
Unhappy with the limitations, hundreds still made the march to make their voices heard.
