Occupy Wall Street March Uptown Against the Millionaires: An Audio-Slideshow on Vimeo by Daniel Medina

The Occupy Wall Street marchers took their cause yesterday to the homes of the richest tycoons in New York City, marching up Park and Fifth Avenues, respectively. They stopped at the homes of NewsCorp CEO Rupert Murdoch, Chase CEO Jamie Dimon and hedge fund pioneer John Paulson where they chanted catchy slogans and held up homemade signs stating their fierce opposition to a new $5 billion tax cut for the wealthiest New Yorkers that Gov. Andrew Cuomo plans to sign into law on Dec. 31.


A heavy police presence followed the demonstrators but their were no incidents, nor arrests. At their last stop on the steps of Mr. Paulson's palatial townhouse on 86th and Fifth, they left a mock $5 billion check that read the "99%" as the payees to the massive cuts.


No one answered the door so they vowed to return and march placing more pressure on the Democratic governor who has come under sharp criticism from within his own party for fiscal concessions to big business in the state budget talks this past summer.
