Never one to be outdone by Manhattan, Brooklyn is planning its own Occupy Wall Street protest on Saturday, with plans to put down stakes in the borough’s financial center of … Grand Army Plaza. So the protest on this side of the bridge for now is only a one-off show of solidarity with the hotties of Zuccotti, and not, we assume, a statement against the capitalistic greed of the public library and farmers market. Unlike protests in the FiDi and throughout the country, Brooklyn’s demonstration got an immediate boost from a local big wig: Mr. Brooklyn himself Marty Markowitz. “There is no doubt that Americans — those in the ‘99 percent’ — are hurting, and we can all agree that some of the issues being raised by these protests … are concerns we can all rally around,” the borough prez told the Brooklyn Paper (Marty wasn’t sure if he will join in on Saturday). They’ve got a bare bones website set up along with a few twitter accounts and a Facebook page for the protest scheduled to go from 11am-question mark. All y’all goin?
