Wall Street Protest Starting to Look Like Egypt

Washington’s Blog

Alexander Higgins reports:

NYPD police scanners are estimating a crowd up to 5,000 are occupying liberty square in a scene that is now starting to look more like Egypt’s Tahrir square.

The protests have become so large that Fox News has set up a live streamcovering the protests. Here are some screen shots from their camera.

Here are some additional photographs from a helicopter.

Who Are the Protesters?

Wall Street is trying to write all of these people off as being “hippies” who “need to get a job” (to which the protesters would respond: That’s the point – There are no jobs, because Wall Street has destroyed the economy.)

Marines and other military men and women.

Wealthy folks such as Russel Simmons and Alec Baldwin.

Liberals and conservatives.

On the other side of the protest line, Mayor Bloomberg is whining that the protesters are targeting bankers who “are struggling to make ends meet”. He has a point: if Wall Street is reined in so that the rest of the country has a chance, the bankers might have to cut back on their mistressesprostitutes and solid gold toilets.
