Pina ends hunger strike
Florida activist Al Piña ended his three-day hunger strike after the target of his protest, Bank of America, agreed to an annual sit-down so his organization can monitor minority-lending practices.
Piña, who heads the Florida Minority Community Reinvestment Coalition, has a similar arrangement already with JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo.
Piña said he is scheduled to meet with various top Bank of America executives in Miami on July 9 to review current data and discuss goals and objectives
