Retail Investors Plan to Demonstrate at SEC Offices Nationwide

Retail investors will picket outside Securities and Exchange Commission offices across the country on Friday and Saturday, meme-stock internet personalities say.

“Occupy SEC 2023” will be an “educational awareness rally,” said Mike Mynar, an event organizer and personality behind TheMarine Activist Channel on YouTube, which discusses and promotes retail investments in meme stocks.

Rally attendees hope to raise “awareness of the want and need for a fair and transparent market for retail investors,” according to an anonymous event sign-up.

Despite its name, it is “not a protest or a march,” Mynar noted in another video, though he did not clarify how the event differs from a protest or march.

The Washington, D.C., daytime event has a permit for 200 people, but Mynar expects “a lot more” because word of it has spread on social media, he said. “Not to mention the 11 other SEC locations folks are going to.”
