Hundreds March In NYC To Mark Occupy Anniversary

About 300 people observing the anniversary of Occupy Wall Street marched to a small concrete park in New York’s lower Manhattan that served as headquarters for the protest movement and was its birthplace.

Police patrolled the crowd Saturday and took at least a dozen people into custody near Trinity Church that borders Zuccotti Park.

Police confirmed they made arrests, mostly for disorderly conduct, but they did not have a total number.
Protesters marched from Washington Square Park and headed south
down Broadway to Zuccotti Park, chanting as they went. The group
later thinned out.

 

The march came on the first of three days of planned events. The official anniversary date is Monday. Occupy Wall Street’s protest against economic disparity eventually spread to other parts of the
country and world.
