Occupy Wall Street returns to NYC, arrests follow

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) — Activists returned to downtown Manhattan Saturday, ahead of the first anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street protests and announced plans to surround the New York Stock Exchange on Monday.

Several media reports said about 25 people were arrested, mostly during a March from Washington Square to Zuccotti Park.

The Wall Street Journal said Sunday that it wasn’t clear what charges protesters faced, and a New York Police Department spokesperson wouldn’t confirm that any arrests had been made.

The crowds gathered ahead of the first anniversary of the movement, which began on Sept. 17, 2011, in Zuccotti Park, near Wall Street. Saturday’s march, of about 250 people according to the New York Times, was the first of three days of actions to mark the anniversary. The Times said about 15 people were arrested Saturday.

Occupy Wall Street launched a series of Occupy protests across the U.S. and other countries last winter, many of which were met with resistance and occasionally force by authorities. The Zuccotti Park occupation was eventually taken apart by NYPD in a nighttime action in mid-November ordered by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
