Why is OWS so Pissed?

"Jose!" she said, horrified, "however are going to stop everything?"
"Stop everything, Laura!" cried Jose in astonishment. "What do you mean?"
But Jose was still more amazed. "Stop the garden-party? My dear Laura, don't be so absurd. Of course we can't do anything of the kind. Nobody expects us to. Don't be so extravagant."
"But we can't possibly have a garden-party with a man dead just outside the front gate."
...
"Oh, Laura!" Jose began to be seriously annoyed. "If you're going to stop a band playing every time some one has an accident, you'll lead a very strenuous life."
-Katherine Mansfield, "The Garden Party"
