When we heard (on this live stream, that’s currently off the air) that some May Day protesters started marching toward a Chipotle in midtown, we thought we’d give them a heads-up. Hopefully they’re making some burritos, because the picketers aren’t super happy with some of their political decisions that we believe have to do with immigrant hiring practices.

#F29: Some photos from today’s Occupy Wall Street protests, which are centered around Bryant Park in New York City and aimed at corrupt corporations. Using the hashtags #F29 and #ShutDowntheCorporations, the protesters seem to be aiming their ire at corporations as well as the American Legislative Exchange Council or ALEC, a conservative non-profit. 

The image in the second row on the left reportedly shows protesters outside of Pfizer’s NYC offices. The bottom two images are a poster advertising and an image of journalist and author Matt Taibbi speaking at the park. Among other things he reportedly urged listeners to take their money out of Bank of America because, “it’s not safe.” (source)
