The protesters of Occupy Wall Street are getting creative when it comes to showing their disdain for corporate greed. Patrick Bruner, a spokesman for the group, today urged protesters to dress up like “corporate zombies” so financial workers “see us reflecting the metaphor of their actions.”
As corporate America and the rest of the international markets brace for a possible default on the Greek government’s debt, protesters are reeling from a tumultuous weekend after a march on the Brooklyn Bridge on Saturday resulted in the arrests of approximately 700 people.
Blockage to pedestrian and road traffic was cited as the main reason behind the arrests. Though, many protesters claimed police strategically trapped them to facilitate the mass crackdown.
The NYPD released footage yesterday to back up their position, which included video of an officer warning the crowds via a bullhorn and marchers chanting, “Take the bridge.”
Similar protests have been held across the country in Boston, Los Angeles and Chicago.
The Occupy Wall Street movement entered into its third week.
