Occupy Wall Street protestors clogged streets and tied up traffic around the U.S. today to mark two months since the movement’s birth and signaled they aren’t ready to quit, despite the breakups by police of many of their encampments throughout these different cities.
More than 200 people were arrested in New York as protestors walked in the streets and chanted “banks were bailed out, while the American people were sold out!” and “All day, all week, shut down Wall Street”.
More than 1,000 demonstrators gathered near the New York Stock Exchange and sat down in several intersections. Helmeted police broke up some of the gatherings, but operations at the stock market were not disrupted.
Later, the crowd split up for rallies elsewhere in the city. Some also planned to head into the subways, then march over the Brooklyn Bridge. Protests took place in Boston, Los Angeles, Washington, Kansas City, MO, Buffalo, NY, Portland, Oregon and Las Vegas, Nevada.
Occupy Wall Street is a huge movement people….I sense a revolution marching in and after any revolution comes change!!!
