New York (HedgeCo.net) – Wall Street has turned into a campground, according to eye witness reports, people have gathered to peacefully protest the double tax standard, hedge fund bonuses and the $300 million underwater cable being laid between London and New York to speed up financial transactions by 6 milliseconds, among other things.
Not widely reported in the news, for fear of a larger gathering, the milling protesters say they may camp out on Wall Street, “for up to a month.”
Protesters have gone as far as to place a small stuffed bunny rabbit on the hood of a police car. Some slogans include: “feed the poor, eat the rich”. Also; “The system is going to collapse,” a voice blasted through megaphone, “we are here to make it collapse faster.”
“The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99 Percent that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the one percent,” said a statement on the website Occupy Wall Street. The movement was launched by the online magazine Adbusters in July.
