Occupy Wall Street protesters will turn their ire on uptown’s billionaires today as they march on the Upper East Side townhouses of Tea Party kingpin David Koch, among others. Gothamist breaks it down:
Organized by the Working Families Party and New York Communities for Change, they will be going by the apartment buildings of Tea Party-lovin’ richest man in NYC David Koch, News Corp. owner Rupert Murdoch, real estate developer (and Andrew Cuomo donor) Howard Milstein, hedge fund manager John Paulson, and JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon. According to Capital New York, the organizers say, “[T]he tour will visit homes of some of the most well-known millionaires in New York City specially chosen for their willingness to hoard wealth at the expense of the 99%.” Interestingly enough, the march will not include a stop at Mayor Bloomberg’s house—maybe they are happy he’s not kicking them out of Zuccotti Park just yet.
The march kicks off at 12:30pm at the southeast corner of Central Park. Facebook event page.
