The first ever Augmented Reality Flashmob Protest took place November 12th, 2011, at the New York Stock Exchange at Wall Street. Organized by Mark Skwarek, the event addressed the fact that protesters are not allowed to protest at Wall Street forcing them blocks from the New York Stock Exchange to the Zuccotti Park. Wall Street was barricaded off. Only part of the sidewalk is accessible to the public and there is a constant police presence around both the protesters and the NYSE at all times.
#arOCCUPYWALLSTREET takes the protest to the heart of the financial district, placing them directly in front of the NYSE. Augments now blanket the entire financial district.
