Occupy Wall Street: Coming to a mansion near you
Occupy Wall Street is on the move … uptown.
Why uptown? Because that’s where the rich folks live!
Community groups and progressive organizations that have been working with the broader Occupy Wall Street movement are planning a march on Tuesday that will visit the homes of JP Morgan Chase (JPM, Fortune 500) CEO Jamie Dimon, billionaire David Koch, hedge fund honcho John Paulson, Howard Milstein, and News Corp (NWSA, Fortune 500) CEO Rupert Murdoch.
The millionaires and billionaires are being targeted for what event organizers called a “willingness to hoard wealth at the expense of the 99%.”
So far, protesters have not strayed too far from downtown, where a home base of sorts has been established at Zuccotti Park.
Tuesday’s march — organized by UnitedNY, the Strong Economy for All Coalition, the Working Families Party and New York Communities for Change — will cover quite a bit of ground if successful.
