OWS protesters cause disruption in NYC, 177 arrested

Thousands of anti-Wall Street protesters clashed with cops today across lower Manhattan, starting with a march on the New York Stock Exchange this morning and ending with a crossing of the Brooklyn Bridge that snarled traffic.

Cops responded in force, at one point this afternoon sweeping into Zuccotti Park and arresting anyone inside. In total, more than 200 people were busted by cops; five of whom were charged with assault.

The culmination of the day of protests to mark the movement’s two-month anniversary began with hundreds of protesters massing on the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge.

 Ninty-nine people wearing white t-shirts saying “99%” sat down on Park Row, blocking traffic. Cops quickly moved in and began arresting them. Centre and Chambers streets were packed with protesters.
