Occupy Miami Needs to Expand: Five Places Worth Protesting the Crap Out Of

​"Occupy Miami is hidden," one woman randomly complained to us over the phone earlier this week. "No one even knows that they are there!"

To be fair, she may have a point. Tucked behind the Stephen P.

This Tuesday's march to Bank of America was a start, but maybe it's time to think bigger.

We're not advocating Oakland-style dumpster fires or anything, but here's a list of five places we think could do with a visit from the 99 percent.
