Young Republicans 'Re-Occupy Wall Street'
The New York Young Republican Club (NYYRC) announced on Thursday that they would have another protest. They created an event via Eventbrite for Sunday at noon in front of Zuccotti Park.
The Organization’s last protest was the “Save Teddy Rally,” in which they argued that the Teddy Roosevelt statue in front of the American Museum of Natural History should be preserved.
This time, the NYYRC is going up against Wall Street and hedge fund managers’ corporatist practices, which are against GameStop and other companies; they are not allowing people to purchase certain stocks.
Their rallying cry at the top of their banner reads, “Let the people trade!”
Earlier this week, NYYRC posted on Facebook , “Let your voices be heard! We are sick of Wall Street bailouts on the taxpayer dime while the little guy gets stomped! Join us in Re-Occupying Wall Street.”
Gavin Wax, the NYYRC President, told the Gateway Pundit,
“First, the government drives millions of Americans into destitution and unemployment by shutting down the economy and their businesses. When the average Joe Schmo wants to make a few bucks trading on the market, he is shut down because Wall Street ended up losing to anons from Reddit. Where are the regulators? Nowhere. We have a two-tiered system in this country; the elites and everybody else. It has been on full display with the shutdown of trading on select stocks,” Wax said.
“The New York Young Republicans will try to do a small part in bringing attention to this issue by re-occupying Zuccotti park, the site of the original Occupy Wall Street protests. We are going to send a message to Corporate America that we will no longer bail you out or cover for you as you silence and bankrupt us," Wax continued.
The “Occupy Wall Street” movement was a left-wing protest that sought to challenge income inequality and Wall Street corruption in the United States in August 2011.
