Last night, over 100 "Occupy Wall Street" protesters marched to a Midtown hotel to protest at a fund-raiser for President Obama.
Protesters, escorted by police, started their march from Bryant Park and headed to the Sheraton hotel where President Obama was expected to appear at 9PM.
They carried signs saying, "Obama is a corporate puppet." Another one read, "War crimes must be stopped, no matter who does them". One man wearing a mask with the president's face was carrying a cigar and a sign that read, "I sold out!"
Ben Campbell, the 28-year-old who organized the protest, said, "President Obama is coming to town solely to raise money from the richest of the rich."
