11 Occupy Wall Street Spin-offs the Media Haven't Touched SHARE: Tweet It took a while for the ol’ lamestream media to recognize the #OccupyWallSt movement was for real. And before the cable news behemoths and New York newspapers even knew what was happening, the protests began to spread organically to many other cities across these United States. You’ve heard about Occupy Together protests flaring up in Washington DC, Chicago, Austin and a whole bunch of other states from Howard Dean’s screamin’ list. You’ve read the heartbreaking stories on the must-see We Are the 99% Tumblr page. You’ve seen our extensive coverage. But so many of these protests continue to be overlooked. How many of you saw the coverage of the Occupy Sesame Street march earlier this week? So in order to keep you one step ahead of the lazy media, here are 11 under-reported “Occupy _____ Street” protests to watch as they unfold in real time. Occupy Bourbon Street Rally cry: “It’s unfair that 99% of beads are collected by the bustiest 1%.” Key demand: “TITS OR GTFO!” Occupy 21 Jump Street Rally cry: “How can we get a good education with all these goddamn narcs around?” Key demand: “Less Debt, more Depp!” Occupy Picabo Street Rally cry: “It’s outrageous that one woman controls so many of our precious medals!” Key demand: “Take down the moguls!” Occupy Easy Street Rally cry: “It’s the hard-knock life for us! ‘Steada Congress, we get schmucks! ‘Steada Progress, we get f*&ked! It’s the hard-knock life for us!” Key demand: “What do we want? More ‘Bucks! When do we want it? Tomorrow!” Occupy 221B Baker Street Rally cry: “Lenders and Big Banks don’t got a clue — they caused this housing crisis!” Key demand: “It’s elementary: Stop foreclosing on our Holmes!” Occupy Baker Street Rally cry: “We used to think that it was so easy, we used to say that it was so easy, but we’re tryin’ now…” Key demand: “More sax solos in mainstream music by Raphael Ravenscroft!” Occupy Shakedown Street Rally cry: “Let’s put an end to corporate-backed grilled cheeese, man! Buy local!” Key demand: “Nitrous balloons should go back down to 3 for $10, brahh.” Occupy Elm Street Rally cry: “Our American Dream has become a nightmare! Wake up, America!” Key demand: “Repeal the 2003 Freddy vs. Jason decision!” Occupy Miracle on 34th Street Rally cry: “People like Kringle do the jobs Americans don’t want!” Key demands: “Open chimneys! More handouts! End elf discrimination in the workshop!” Occupy Fleet Street Rally cry: “Blood on your hands! Blood on your hands!” Key demand: “No more cuts — they’re killing us!” Occupy Lombard Street Rally cry: “This place is headed downhill! You’re all crooked!” Key demand: “Too much right and left — give it to us straight!” Consider yourself informed. Word has it, after all these protests are picked up by the media, the crowds will move along to their next targets: Occupy Electric Avenue, Occupy Yellow Brick Road, Occupy Wisteria Lane, Occupy Dixie Highway, Occupy Oregon Trail, Occupy Abbey Road, and Occupy Avenue Q. There’s even an unconfirmed report (which came in to HV HQ, um, Yesterday) of a massive demonstration being planned on the Long and Winding Road.
