Promises, promises.....

Demonstrators plan to mark the first anniversary of Occupy Wall Street, which morphed into a global protest movement last year.

Planned disruptions include obstructing intersections around the New York Stock Exchange and elsewhere in the financial district, as well as other “autonomous or mass actions” that morning, a Monday, according to the website.

Some activists plan to bring handcuffs and attempt citizen’s arrests of bankers, according to Bloomberg News.

“We are just going to cause chaos, period,” one organizer, Drew Hornbein, told Bloomberg News. “Have you ever been in poverty in this country? Talk about inconvenience. I don’t have any sympathy for anyone who has any semblance of middle-class life in this country — no sympathy.”
