in Society

According to some reports, on Saturday evening Saturday, October 1, 2011, over 700 Occupy Wall Street protesters who have been occupying a downtown Manhattan square, New York City for two weeks were arrested on the Brooklyn Bridge during a march with standing in the roadway and blocking the Brooklyn-bound lanes. The march began from Zuccotti Park, the homebase for the two-week old protest against corporate excess. Let’s have a look at these latest images of "Occupy Wall Street" protest.


"Occupy Wall Street" protest which is considered as the largest protest in the U.S is in its second week as demonstrators gather in the street and speak out against corporate greed, anger at financial and social inequality, and several other issues. Nearly two weeks ago, an estimated 3,000 people gathered at Battery Park with the intention of protesting as part of an "Occupy Wall Street" movement. Nearly 80 people were arrested last weekend in a series of incidents with the New York police as the protesters attempted to march uptown. They were an eclectic group, mostly young, some with beards and tattoos, other dressed in shorts and sneakers; a few even wore suits for the occasion.
