Tsk, tsk!

How rude, to show up like that without an invitation! I am so ashamed to be associated… with these WONDERFUL, BRAVE PEOPLE!!!!

Occupy Wall Street protesters took a field trip from Zuccotti Park on Saturday morning, all the way to the wealthy suburban enclave of New Canaan, Conn., where they took their anger at income and tax disparity to GE CEO Jeff Immelt’s front lawn.

“In the land of the free they tax me but not G.E.!” read the invitation to protesters to take an hour bus ride to Immelt’s family home. “General Electric made billions last year; they paid no taxes, outsourced thousands of jobs, and got over $3 billion in tax refunds! Join us on a free bus trip to G.E’s CEO’s front lawn to see how our friends in the 1% live.”

A crowd of about 100 protesters, both from New York and local offshoot Occupy New Haven, spent the afternoon standing outside Immelt’s 6-bedroom, 10-bathroom, $5.25 million home. Photos from local news site New Canaan Patch show a police officer guarding Immelt’s gates while protesters hold placards reading “Mr. Immelt, Meet the 99%” and “Jobs Not Bailouts”.

  1. Since this past Friday thousands of OWS protesters have been arrested around the country. By both Democratic and Republican mayors. It would seem that the oligarchy has put the word out to its paid political plutocrats that enough is enough. One more victory for the OWS movement. If you haven’t been arrested yet what are you waiting for? Be Peaceful.

  2. Yeah, they did it in a dawn raid in Australia too this morning at Occupy Sydney.

    They aren’t going to take this lying down you know – and it might get ugly and violent before it’s all over. Be prepared.

    On a related front food prices are spiking (peanut butter will be up ~40% by Nov. 1st and other wholesale food items have jumped lately too – fruit, vegetables etc. and not because they’re out of season.
