CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
A year after shutting down streets outside the Bank of America stockholder meeting, only a few dozen protesters showed up in uptown Charlotte for the 2013 meeting.
Charlotte's city manager declared the meeting an “extraordinary event,” giving police added powers to diffuse problems, but there was little to diffuse.
A small group stood across the street from the meeting site at Trade and Tryon streets and held signs and chanted slogans peacefully.
Inside, the stockholders meeting Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan said the bank is "better positioned than ever" and that he is "very optimistic about what lies ahead" for the bank.
In an hour-long question and answer session, Moynihan faced few questions related to the bank's performance, despite ongoing lawsuit and settlements related to bad mortgage loans.
He was peppered with questions about the bank's support of the coal industry. At least a dozen different stockholders criticized the bank's loans to utilities and others who use and mine coal.
