Folks marching on Upper East Side.
Protesters in New York are planning a march Tuesday afternoon on the uptown homes of several of the city’s billionaires, including conservative moneybags David Koch and Rupert Murdoch. Others on the itinerary are JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, hedge fund manager John Paulson, and developer Howard Milstein, CNN Money reports. Organizers said they’re targeting the men for their “willingness to hoard wealth at the expense of the 99 percent.”
The plan is to hop the subway to 59th Street and walk from there beginning shortly after noon. A spokesman said the protesters don’t have a permit but are planning to use the sidewalks rather than block traffic in the streets.
