Wait…Occupy Wall Street Has A Luxury PR Firm?

We’ve had a hard time pinpointing the exact “cause” behind Occupy Wall Street, but we’re pretty sure it has something to do with hating on the corporate world and big, fancy luxury things. Explain to us, then, how Occupy Wall Street ended up with a high-end luxury PR firm?
The protesters have complained about a lack of media coverage. Workhouse Publicity has stepped in, pro bono. Protesters said they received emails — unsolicited — from the high end PR firm, which included a link to an album of photos from the protest posted by Workhouse’s CEO.
There’s been lots of support for Occupy Wall Street — but from a company that makes a business of promoting brands and events like Fashion Week, Saks Fifth Avenue and Swiss luxury watch brand Bucherer? Seems a bit strange.
“We have no agenda and our service in this regard is simple: Publicize the message as the march continues,” CEO Adam Nelson said.
Does anyone have an agenda around these parts?
