Yesterday, Occupy Wall Street, in conjunction with a number of New York City progressive advocacy organisations, took a walk through the Upper East Side to visit some of the richest businessmen in the city.The marchers started on the southeast corner of Central Park, and moved northeast to the homes of Rupert Murdoch, David Koch, Howard Milstein, Jamie Dimon, and John Paulson.
At each stop, a speaker used the human microphone to explain who each homeowner was, how much money they had, and what exactly they did that the protesters should be so upset about.
The march started around 12:30 PM and lasted til around 4 PM. And as you can imagine, there were cops everywhere.
After a bit, the crowd started moving east, taking up avenues at a time. I didn't think it was possible, but even more press showed up.
And then there were the serious looking guys that looked like security, but definitely weren't cops. When I asked the cops about them, they wouldn't answer.
After that, the crowd headed back to where they came from. Some went home, and others went back down to Zuccotti Park
