Occupy Wall Street
New York, New York
October 11, 2011
A coalition of community groups allied with Occupy Wall Street transplanted their critique from downtown Manhattan to the Upper East Side, rallying in front of the stately apartment buildings of billionaires that included News Corporation CEO Rupert Murdoch, Koch Industries vice president David Koch and New York Private Bank & Trust CEO president Howard Milstein.
The participants of the event, that began on September 17, are mainly protesting against social and economic inequality, corporate greed, and the influence of corporate money and lobbyists on government, among other concerns.
