October 10, 2011- Planned back-to-back protests on Tuesday and Wednesday by some of the city's most seasoned agitators will look to build on the energy of the Occupy Wall Street movement to advance union campaigns by workers across the five boroughs.

The coalition of labor, community and advocacy groups that organized last week's 15,000-person march to support the protest in lower Manhattan is planning a “Millionaires March” for Tuesday afternoon that will visit homes of some of the city's wealthiest residents. JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, billionaire businessman David Koch, financier Howard Milstein, News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch and hedge fund maven John Paulson are all expected to receive visits at their homes.
