The Occupy movement, or what’s left of it, plans to surround the New York Stock Exchange on Monday to mark its 1-year anniversary.
CNBC has the scoop:
Occupy Wall Street marks its first anniversary on Monday, and, in a bid to rejuvenate a movement that has failed to sustain momentum after sparking a national conversation about economic inequality last fall, activists plan once again to descend on New York’s financial district.
The group, which popularized the phrase “We are the 99 percent,” will attempt to surround the New York Stock Exchange and disrupt morning rush hour in the financial district, according to a movement spokeswoman.

Remember: According to the Left, it’s just a peaceful movement.
