Guess Who REALLY Planned The Occupy Wall Street Millionaires March
October 15, 2011
Yesterday’s march on the Upper East Side was well planned, well staffed and well researched.
We know that Occupy Wall Street is capable of doing something like that, but this time, the credit for yesterday’s showing goes to someone else.
They’re calling themselves 99 New York. It’s a master organization of many New York progressive advocacy groups that have been working with Occupy Wall Street (talking to their General Assembly) since its early days.
Here’s an excerpt from their press release:
The Millionaires March — a kick-off to the fight against the expiration of New York’s millionaire’s tax — took a tour around Manhattan’s ritzy Upper East Side…”New York’s wealthiest continue to enjoy unparalleled luxuries while working people and families across our state are struggling day in and day out just to make ends meet…the inequality must stop,” said Camille Rivera, Executive Director of UnitedNY.
