Burger King denies refusing service to Occupy Wall Street protesters

Burger King has denied that Occupy Wall Street protesters have been barred from service in any of their restaurants. The denial comes after a number of protesters claimed they were refused service.

The protesters say that they were simply trying to order coffee, and a Facebook page has been set up urging people to boycott the fast food chain until they change their policies. However, Burger King insists that there is no truth to the claim that it has denied service to any protesters.

Occupy Wall Street is now entering its third week, as similar protests emerge in other US cities. The Occupy Together movement is seen by some as a harbinger of genuine change in America, but by others as an aimless, ill-defned movement that has failed to garner significant support. Earlier today, 700 protesters were arrested on Brooklyn Bridge during a march.

  1. Every time you lock up a peaceful protester, you exemplify the police state we live in. Hold strong in your Occupations popping up ALL OVER the WORLD now! The movement is viral and Anonymous has sounded it’s cannon. See my painting for the cause and a slew of videos of #OccupyWallStreet at Drop by, get informed, collaborate through solidarity! Hold Corporate America accountable for their corruption of the government and endangering our Middle Class.

  2. Now you see the violence inherent in the system! Help, help, I’m being repressed!
