‘Occupy’ Protests Obama Event

Occupy Wall Street protesters headed uptown Wednesday night to call out President Obama. More than 100 protesters set up shop outside the Sheraton Hotel at 53rd Street and Seventh Avenue, where Obama was expected to show up for a fundraising event. Demonstrators donned Obama masks and carried signs deriding the president as “a corporate puppet” and a sellout. Police attempted to keep protesters at bay with barricades in front of the hotel.
