MINNEAPOLIS - Protesters with Occupy Homes Minnesota held what they call a Vampire March in downtown Minneapolis on Monday.

About 15 people gathered at the government center around 12 p.m.

The group says they are unhappy with JPMorgan Chase and a possible $13 billion settlement being finalized in response to investigations into its mortgage backed securities. 

The group marched to the U.S. Attorney's office, calling the settlement "blood money." 

Rather than what they believe will be small settlement checks to people who have already lost homes, they want to keep people, like Jaymie Kelly, in their homes.

Kelly is in foreclosure on her Powderhorn Park area home. 

"I've been in my home 30 years," she said. "I've paid more than $425,000 for a home I bought for $74,900 30 years ago. Had I not run into predatory lenders I would have had my home paid off as of last Aug. 1."

After marching to the U.S. Attorney's office, the protesters continued their march to the JPMorgan Chase offices to demand a better settlement.
