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.

    The protests are getting embassassing. The protesters are letting their defenses down as days go by and are sinking to real low levels of human kind

    What the protesters need to do is to go before the Pentagon and Congress to protest the needless and excessive military spending and all these useless wars that we're needlessly fighting overseas so that U.S. companies can exploit these counties' resources. The bottom line here is that we have the wrong priorities here and that needs to change in the worst way. If not, this country will only suffer further and in vain!!!

    It's not an insult to someone who hijacks names for their own mindless drivel. And I'm an independent, bozo.

    Fellow Americans the call Is on for the people to take back Americs and end Goverent subordination now.
    But these protesters may not be showing the ideal expressions of a true protest, instead are expressing vulgarity disorganization selfpropaganda not a cause of interest to the American people.

    @ chillipepper:
    "...real low levels of human kind?"
    Some of these demonstrators don't have enough food or a place to live.
    They may not even understand why they are in trouble, but they are hungry, and they know that there is a terrible problem.
    At least, respect them in their trouble.

    It'll be interesting to see how the protest grows and where exactly the demonstrators will take it throughout the city. It's clearly only been growing since it first started and now there are so many different voices and people from all backgrounds that are participating in the Occupy Wall Street protests. On Democracy Now!, Amy Goodman interviewed a bunch of these people at OWS and it was really interesting to see why all of these people were coming together for the one cause.

    I know the occupy protesters have got to be getting tired from all that marching around. Maybe if they ask nicely, the rich people will put them up for the night. After all, they've got those giant mansions with ten bedrooms and only two people living in the house. Surely they can find it in their hearts to offer assistance to the less fortunate. We all know how they care for the commoners. And maybe, just maybe they'll let us eat cake.

      Oh by the way, that was meant to be sarcasm. Just thought I better clear that up since some of you don't seem to know what that is when you see it.

    @ chrissy:
    That was my fussing at chillipepper, but I think you read a troll's post and believed it to be mine about moving it to DC.
    I am getting hit a lot these days. Maybe Hagen is still around.
    Where's Faux Ellis from Panama? Did somebody clean him up with Charmin?

    Occupy Wall Street that the cry of freedom from tyrannical economic oppresors who deals the fortunes of the world at their whim. The system has been abused by con artists, insider traders & charlatans instilling fear or overconfidence to direct interests to a certain few. Light up a cigar,puf-puf ahhh, so if Wall st. Gets in trouble the tax payers come through to pay out millions on CEO bonuses & still go under. This system & the previous administration's frivilous spending has sucked this nation dry. The middle-class, the bedrock of this nation for the past 60 years, has been flogged by foreclosure, bankruptcy, & unemployment at the hands of the above mentioned for their own personal extreme ambitions has hoarded most of the wealth stagnating the economy & leaving the hapless consumers who made them rich to fend for themselves. Economic oragnized crime that is covered up by the billions it brings in; no shortage of cash to buy freedom from prosecution & keep juicing america until the wheels fall off!
