    'Occupy' To Hit 40 'Corporate Targets' For Anniversary Protests - Disguised In 'Business Attire'

    On its one-year anniversary, Occupy Wall Street plans “occupations of corporate lobbies and intersections.” Handouts available on the group’s website list 40 “corporate targets” for action including such big names as Fidelity Investments, Federal Reserve Bank, and Standard & Poors. Protesters are encouraged to “wear business attire,” presumably so they can mix in with office workers.

    Occupiers, who hit the news in 2011 with tons of media fanfare, have faded into the background. Even The Washington Post, which has written repeatedly favorable stories about the group, questioned its importance. A story the day before the anniversary was headlined: “A year later, Occupy movement struggles for relevance.”

    According to Reuters, these protests include surrounding Wall Street. “At 7 a.m. Monday, some protesters will try to surround the NYSE, while others will engage in a loosely choreographed series of ‘sit-ins’ at intersections throughout the financial district, according to OWS's website.”

    The group’s website claims that on Sept. 17, they “will occupy Wall Street with non-violent civil disobedience and flood the area around it with a roving carnival of resistance.”

    According to The New York Daily News, the first day of the three-day anniversary protest resulted in 25 arrests. “By late afternoon, tensions between activists and cops led to arrests, as a procession of protesters chanting “F--- the police!” marched down Broadway bound for Zuccotti Park, the movement’s old base.”

    This has some serious potential for some excellent mockery. I mean, what would a bunch of dirty hippies know about "business attire?"

    If it's a carnival now, where are the rides? At least put the protestors in dunking booths for our amusement.

    40 businesses? I doubt if they can muster 40 people.
