The Other 98 Percent
Jump to navigation Jump to search
The Other 98 Percent "is a grassroots network of concerned citizens fed up with the status quo in Washington", according to their web site.
Ownership of the organization and web site is unclear, as the site does not name the individuals or organization responsible for it. The following bits of information seem relevant, but do not point to a clear conclusion:
- domain: Their domain name (other98.com) is registered in the name of one Andrew Boyd of New York City -- presumably the same Andrew Boyd who created Billionaires for Bush in 2004.
- protest: A protest for which The Other 98% takes credit ("The Other 98% Shuts Down K Street") and which prominently featured "The Other 98%" banners, was described in Mother Jones as having been organized by Service Employees International Union.

- 2010/05/17 [L..T] Protesters Take Over Banks, K St. “It didn't take long for the handful of irritated Bank of America employees to abandon their desks and make for the doors. Their office, a small Bank of America branch on Massachusetts Avenue, had been more or less taken over by a boisterous rally of 75 or so protesters from the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), the organizer behind two days' worth of Wall Street-themed protests in or near Washington.”
