In a none-too-subtle intimidation tactic, the New York Occupiers have decided to shift their attention from Zuccoti Park to the Upper East Side of New York to "see how 'the 1%' lives.'"
Check out this Facebook posting:
In the update they write:
Wanna "see how the 1% lives"? Then join us on a walking tour of the homes of some of the bank and corporate executives that don't pay taxes, cut jobs, engaged in mortgage fraud, tanked our economy.....all while giving themselves record setting bonuses!
Occupy wall street will join community groups fighting for economic justice.
You can meet at Liberty Square/Zuccotti Park at 11:00 am and we will take the subway together or you can meet at 59th and 5th ave at 12:30pm. (please indicate if you will travel with us front he square) [sic]
We'll be meeting at 59th Street and 5th Avenue at 12:30 pm, and then march from house to house, demanding accountability for Wall Street crimes, and an extension of the Millionaire's tax.
Who will we be visiting exactly? Well....you're just gonna have to come to find out.
However, despite all their social media organizing efforts, protesters might be disappointed in what they find. See, normally at around 11:00 AM, the "1%" will not be in their neighborhoods.
They will have left their houses to go to something called "work."
The idea resembles a March in May 2010, when union protesters from the SEIU showed up at the home of Bank of America executive Greg Baer. They picketed Bear's home, despite the fact that Baer wasn't there and his young son was forced to listen to the angry rhetoric:
