Dear Commons Community,
Occupy Wall Street fueled by members of unions staged a “Millionaire’s March” through the Upper East Side yesterday afternoon. Participants protested outside the homes of Rupert Murdoch (Fox News, Wall Street Journal), Jamie Dimon (CHASE Bank) and the industrialist David H. Koch.
The major focus of this march was to pressure state legislators not to let the state’s tax on millionaires expire at the end of this year. It is estimated that this tax yields $5 billion in revenue yearly.
All was peaceful.
