As it says on their "about" page...

(Occupy Wall Street) is fighting back against the corrosive power of major banks and multinational corporations (and) aims to expose how the richest 1% of people are writing the rules of an unfair global economy.

"Yeeaahh", says fattie Michael Moore, who addressed an Occupy crowd in Denver last week and railed against "greedy" corporations. Though, to be fair, that isn't why he went to Denver in the first place.

Moore was in Denver on a tour to promote his $27 memoir, 'Here Comes Trouble: Stories from My Life.'

By the way that book is published by Grand Central Publishing, a subdivision of the French company Hachette, which is the second largest publisher in the world. Hachette is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Lagardère Group, a multinational conglomerate headquartered in Paris which does business in nearly 40 countries. Among other things they hold a 7.5% stake in EADS, a global defense and military contractor, which absorbed the Lagardère subsidiary Aérospatiale-Matra, a French missile and aircraft manufacturer. On a side note, some claim Moore is worth 50 million dollars. But I'm getting off track. "Heese hiant companies an wich people are ewol," says Moore between bites of food!

And now Jay Z wants to cash in on Occupy too, though he just said fuck it and isn't even gonna pretend that he's trying to help in some way.

The millionaire rapper and entrepreneur is launching a line of Occupy Wall Street-themed t-shirts featuring the phrase "Occupy All Streets," that go on sale on Jay-Z's Rocawear website on Friday.
But the genius behind "99 Problems" isn't sharing the profits with the 99 percent. A spokesperson from Rocawear told Business Insider in a statement that the company has not "made an official commitment" to support the movement financially.

I'd also like to encourage these dirty hippies to Occupy All Streets. Since that's where I drive.
