Demonstrators Mark 1st Anniversary of Occupy Wall Street [Obama Fans Interrupt Business]
WNYC-TV ^ | September 17, 2012 | Brigid Bergin

Posted on 09/17/2012 5:20:48 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Protesters plan to take to the streets of New York City to mark the first anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement. After a weekend of events in Manhattan —and multiple arrests —demonstrators intend to gather in spots across lower Manhattan on Monday to disrupt the start of the workday.

The groups, which meet at 7 a.m., will organize around issues that appeal to the concerns of protester. There will be zones for debt, education, environment and the 99 percent. Once people are assembled, the groups will wind their way towards the stock exchange where they expect to form the so-called “people’s wall.”

Organizer Lisa Fithian explained that once protesters make their way into the Financial District, the goal is to stop people from going to work.

I am seeing some of this via a colleague's satellite right now. These morons are blocking doors, traffic, and giving cops a hard time. Some have been arrested.

How NYC can vote liberal is beyond reason.

They are part of the 99% — 99% of red diaper trust funders and old fart hippies.

"getting ready for work" is a foreign concept to these leftist dirtbags.

I visited OWS last October,before it had full descended into a homeless camp of robberies,rapes and heroin ODs,and soon after arrival I knew that I was in an alternate universe.But I didn't realize it was *that* bad.I sincerely hope that those two clowns were part of a staged comedy skit rather than for "real".Otherwise,well.....

I’m sure it will be over-hyped for the small crowd size I’ve seen on TV this morning.

Sorry, I assumed you were referring to one of the drum players. Did you mean one of the drums was good looking?

To be completely fair, let’s note that a goodly number of the OWS protesters think Obama isn’t far enough left.

This was not staged - it appeared these two were "real" OWS stooges. Rapes? Heroin? Robberies? Yeah....JUST like a "TEA Party rally.../sarc

Occupy was running ads on Craig’s List some time back... I wonder what they’re paying now?

You might be righter than you know... Communists - it’s the right word - and my guess is paid for by groups outside the United States.

“Occupy was running ads on Craig’s List some time back... I wonder what they’re paying now?”

Probably more than the $600 plus a week that they were paying before.

I always thought Ketchup’s sidekick, Justin, was tragically misnamed: I always think of him as “Mustard”.
