Wall Street protesters march through Manhattan, with an eye on millionaires' homes
NEW YORK (AP) ' Hundreds of protesters are streaming through midtown Manhattan in what they're calling a "Millionaires March."
They plan to pass the homes of some of New York City's wealthiest residents.
They've been marching two by two up the sidewalk. An organizer said they didn't have a permit and wanted to avoid blocking pedestrian traffic.
They're expressing concerns about how much less the wealthy will pay when New York's 2 percent "millionaires' tax" expires in December.
Many of the protesters have been camped out for weeks near Wall Street. They're credited with starting a movement that has slowly spread nationwide.
