Occupy Again Eyes Paulson With May Day Protest

May 2 2012 | 2:58am ET

Paulson & Co. can't catch a break when it comes to the Occupy Wall Street protests.

The group's long-planned May Day marches and protests targeted, among others, Paulson's New York headquarters. About 100 protestors stood outside Paulson's Sixth Avenue offices, holding signs demanding, "Hey, Hedge Funds—PAY YOUR FAIR SHARE."

The protests outside Paulson's office follow those in October, which targeted his Upper East Side townhouse and a Midtown hotel in which he was holding an event.

"Paulson & Co. and its employees have paid hundreds of millions in New York City and New York State taxes in recent years and have created over 100 high-paying jobs in New York City since its formation" in 1994, the firm said in a statement responding to yesterday's protest.
