(Reuters) - Protesters hope to shut down Wall Street on Thursday -- home to the New York Stock Exchange -- by holding a street carnival to mark the two-month anniversary of their campaign against economic inequality.
Protest organizers acknowledged that the "day of action" could be the group's most provocative yet, and could lead to mass arrests and further strain relations with city authorities.
"I think we're certainly going into this with our eyes wide open, but (the march is) to provoke ideas and discussion, not to provoke any violent reactions," said Occupy Wall Street spokesman Ed Needham.
"I think it is very difficult to do a day of action and not expect some sort of reaction from the (authorities)," he said.

So all the folks who work in the stock exchange will be entering the back of the building?
mace and tasering before 9.
They going to threaten the traders with herpes?
It is bigger than just this.
NEW YORK Watch out New York City. The Occupy anti-capitalist movement is preparing to serve a three-course meal of so-called direct action that apparently includes the blocking of subways and bridges as well as shutting down the stock market.
The attempt to cause mass chaos, slated for Thursday, is tied to the Tides Center, the George Soros-financed group that funds far-left causes. Tides grantees have been helping to direct Occupy from the onset of the anti-Wall Street movement.
Occupy Wall Street is currently holding “Direct Action Preparation and Training” courses today and tomorrow in downtown Manhattan to gear up for Thursday’s round of riots.
The Occupy site announces: “Action Preparation & Training for November 17th, November 30th and Beyond.”

Wonder how Bloomberg will react when one of the occupiers ends up on the tracks in front of a train.
These donks are turning into terrorists. Time to treat them as such before they spread into neighborhoods around the country.
That’s what I tell my liberal sister.
They aren’t coming way the hell out here to my house, they’re going to your 6 figure and up suburban neighborhood.
That mascot is not a donkey.
Like I always say. NIP IT IN THE BUD.
But no, we have a setting donk, encouraging this crap.
Actually, I think they are right where they belong ... in the liberal/progressive pits of the country. If you live in one of these pits and you are not a liberal/progressive then consider yourself to be collateral damage which they can easily dismiss as necessary for the cause.
Donk is my favorite bad word for people I despise.
It is also used in poker.
Oh, I thought you were just giving the RATs a pass by calling them donkeys.
Well good luck OWS, New Yorkers have weathered every possible obstruction from black out to 9/11 - we know how to behave, we just keep going and will move right around you- OWS may be surprised by how New Yorkers will smile and nod and dismiss this and keep right on going- that’s what we do.
No idea how Bloomberg will react. As for me, I will be cheering if these vermin get themselves run over by trains. I consider these occupypublicparks worms 5th columnists and if they want to win darwin awards offing themselves, I say more power to them.
Well, I do call them donks because I do despise them but that’s a nice way of dealing with my emotions.
Dissidents could dissappear easily in such a setting...
They might find camping out is not just a walk in the park.
Winter is coming and I suspect many of the protesters will become unenthused.
Clueless and uncomfortable=retreat
Despite being basically surrounded by these vermin, I agree. I laughed when some shop owner in San Fran complained about Occupy San Fran protestors were urinating and defecating near her business.
I mean, hello? How is that different than the homeless bums you allow to run around your city?
Call in the Kent State National Guard, 50 rounds per man, then bayonets.
Send in the clowns...
Call in an E train full of subway riders intent on getting home, the blase indifference, and irritation to the OWS will quickly derail them... Do not get in the way of a NY subway rider, especially during rush hour, we endure enough - we are legion against a less than 1 % -
OWS will not amuse your average subway rider
Obama’s brownshirts on a shakedown for Obama 2012 donations.
Send in the State College riot police.
Send in the Portland Police for goodness sake , they did an amazing job - cleared the parks and reclaimed them for the people - without any violence
LOL yeah. My favorite subsonic warbird.
While they are marching the city should power wash Obamaville.
Security around the NYSE is quite strict. There is a complex set of barricades to pass through. No one can come close to the building unauthorized. The police guarding are “smarter than the average bear.” On the downside, that means there is only one approved entrance. A carnival on Wall St and Nassau would cause quite a commotion.
I bet they will be wondering why their plans failed when they announced it to the world and the Police were prepared.
What happened to those kinds of Americans, as our country is being destroyed 41 years later from within all the while the Imposter in the White House is egging it on from overseas with an Alnksky, Cloward and Pivens wink and a nod.
when does peaceful protest become insurrection?
Yeah, remember when union hardhats were REAL Americans? Not just leftist tools. And even in 1970, the majority of them werre probably democrats, too.
Please explain that contraption?
Why did the liberal mayors oust the Occupier/scumbags this week?

Why have so many major cities turned on the Occupiers?
The liberal mayors/leaders of Oakland, Portland, New York City and other cities, this week have decided that the Occupier/scumbags are not welcome. Across the nation liberal mayors have sent in cops in their cities , to move the scumbags out of their encampments and tear down their encampments.
So what has happened and why this week?
Did the mayors finally wake and realized that these scumbags were not the 99% of he/she/its in white hats?
Did the merchants in the impacted areas finally convince the mayors that their businesses were being devastated and would not have a lot of sales tax $s to give to the cities due to their lost business?
Did the mayors finally listen to Public Health Doctors/Nurses and others that these encampments were huge germ/virus pools that could threaten large sections of the citys population not involved?
Did the daily rapes/murders/robberies/fights in the encampments finally wake up the mayors?
Did the mayors fear a massive backlash from independent and working democrat voters in their cities or even recalls?
There was probably a lot of the above and other factors that influenced the mayors.
How about another factor. Did the DNC run focus groups of working voters in those cities and find out that the Occupier scumbags in each city were probably costing the Democrats votes across the nation?
Well, something happened, and it probably was not a coincidence, that this week, the left wing mayors of these liberal cities across America, decided to take out the Occupier Garbage, human and infectious garbage.
You’ve probably seen this parody of a 1970s AFSCME “PSA” — it’s a parody voiceover using a REAL “PSA” film — but just in case you haven’t, it’s hilarious.
MASSIVE LANGUAGE WARNING.
That’s fine. I prefer the original and traditional term, referring to Andrew Jackson...”Jackass”
It couldn’t be any clearer (again) — invoke the RICO Act!
