(CNN) -- Demonstrators in Oakland, California, are expected to engage in a citywide strike Wednesday as the Occupy movement continues to stretch across the country and well into its second month.
Organizer Tim Simons called the move a "warning shot to the 1%."
The 1% is a reference to the nation's wealthiest, whom demonstrators say hold inordinate sway over the remaining 99% of the population.
"Today, we're going to take that back," he told CNN, explaining that the group is mostly angry at the "big banks."
These people are just retarded.
