As if the Occupy Wall Street protestors weren't annoying enough, now they are preparing to take their message across the planet. In conjunction with May Day observances, Occupy protesters will hit New York and other locations to complain about the "man" keeping them down. If the "man" is doing anything, "he" should be saying, "Get off your butt and do something productive."

Occupy Wall Street demonstrators, whose anti-greed message spread worldwide during an eight-week encampment in Lower Manhattan last year, plan marches across the globe today calling attention to what they say are abuses of power and wealth.
Organizers say they hope the coordinated events will mark a spring resurgence of the movement after a quiet winter. Calls for a general strike with no work, no school, no banking and no shopping have sprung up on websites in Toronto, Barcelona, London, Kuala Lumpur and Sydney, among hundreds of cities in North America, Europe and Asia.
CNSNews.com reports that protest organizers in New York are hoping for the "biggest shut down the city of New York has ever seen."
The announcement went on to cite how Occupy Wall Street had shut the Brooklyn Bridge and another closure of that bridge, as well as the Holland Tunnel. The release claimed: "But this May 1, we will create the biggest shut down the city of New York has ever seen." "We are announcing these blockades now as a fair warning to the rest of the working people of New York and New Jersey who are considering joining the strikes and mobilizations of the day: the city will be shut down, so enjoy the day without the 99%!" warned the site.
Occupy Wall Street has been a global anti-capitalism protest that, according to OccupyArrests, has resulted in 6,877 arrests so far. While the movement went largely dormant over the winter, it has vowed to come strong in the spring.
If they start pitching tents again, somebody please give them some soap.
