The national Occupy Wall Street movement has been heating up again — resulting in about 50 arrests in Boston and plans for a Manhattan “Millionaires March” to the homes of some of the city’s wealthiest residents.
The Occupy Boston arrests occurred early today. Police say the protesters ignored warnings to move from a downtown greenway near the place where they’ve been camping for more than a week.
During the New York City march, protesters will bear oversize checks. They’re intended to symbolize how much less the wealthy will pay when New York’s 2 percent “millionaires’ tax” expires in December.
The Daily News says the marchers plan to visit the homes of News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch, JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon and oil tycoon David Koch.
