Wall Street protests to target NYC millionaires



NEW YORK (AP) — 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 Tuesday. 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 (http://nydn.us/q2Uxci 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.
