Occupy Wall Street moves uptown

The Occupy Wall Street demonstrators will leave the confines of Lower Manhattan Tuesday and head uptown, organizers said.

An afternoon march will take them past the homes of well-to-do folks like JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, billionaire David Koch and News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch.

Nearly four weeks into their protests, demonstrators typically have not strayed too far from downtown, where a home base of sorts has been established at Zuccotti Park.

Protesters plan to hop on the subway, emerging at 59th street near Central Park, where they will start their tour just after noon, according to organizers. It was uncertain how many people would take part.

    these people need to keep their eye on what is really important, and not get sidetracked but a jillion different issues.
    All in all, though, I think they're doing a good job.

    we are the american people the ones who worked in factorys and in mills ,at one time we had jobs insurance and homes until big buisness decided to take their buisness elsewhere .they have took the backbone of our country ,where a family could have a steady income and a dream of haveing a home ,until the industry is reastabilished inthis cournty it will never back on track . The people in the occupy movement need to be assured this country is for the common people not for the fat cat banks ,and big buisness the have robbed u and let us down .and politicians lets get real the reason u argue and never pass anything is u are both working for the same side ,no republicans no democratic u are all the same owned by the rich controled by the rich

    Perhaps 1 out of the whole crowd is dedicated to their cause. All you have to do is watch them to see that 99% of them are just filthy bums and worn out hippy styles with no diea even what the protest is for. Just an opportunity to hang out like old woodstock and raise hell. A real working man could not afford to spend weeks off work to live in a park singing songs and screaming chants that don't even make sense. It's party in the park.....not occupy wallstreet. They made a joke of it.
