Inside the capitol in the reception area outside Governor Andrew Cuomo’s office—an area known as the “war room”—protestors chanted and made statements.
Protestor Elisia DeWisblair of Rochester urged the governor to support extension of the state’s millionaire’s tax, and said the Occupy movement is here to stay:
"We are going to fight for economic justice and equality, please stand with us—please continue the tax and stop the servitude of New York’s very foundation."
The Democrat-controlled Assembly has passed legislation to continue higher income taxes for New York's top earners, though Senate Republicans have opposed it and Cuomo says he is against it.
Protesters have camped in the city's Academy Park since October 21st.
