Police say nearly 200 people have been arrested as Occupy Wall Street protesters march in small groups around Manhattan’s financial district to mark the anniversary of the grass-roots movement.

The demonstrators clogged traffic, and dozens of police officers and vans lined the streets.

But the protests lacked the heft of last year’s Occupy events. Last year there were thousands of protesters. On Monday morning, there were a few hundred at most.

Earlier, they gathered across from Zuccotti Park, the site of the movement’s birth.

Events are planned in more than 30 cities worldwide.

In San Francisco, they included an afternoon march to the Financial District and an evening rally outside Bank of America.
