Democracy Now: Occupy Activists Protest GE Shareholders Meeting
Dozens of protesters affiliated with the Occupy movement rallied in Detroit on Wednesday at the annual shareholders meeting of the corporate giant General Electric. A group of 100 demonstrators made it inside the meeting to disrupt the opening proceedings. The protesters chanted “Pay Your Fair Share,” a reference to GE’s notoriously low tax rate. It was the second consecutive day to see an Occupy protest at a shareholders meeting, following one on Tuesday against the banking giant Wells Fargo in San Francisco.
