Occupy Wall Street has gone nationwide, with protests today in Los Angeles and Maine. But the group of young people who started the march in New York didn’t take the day off today, they took their protests to the next level and were joined by various unions as well. A faction of the group in New York eventually ended up on the Brooklyn Bridge, less than a mile away from Wall Street.
Below is an unedited video showing some of the protesters, as they shut down the bridge. Reports suggests that some 400 people were arrested.
Occupy Wall Street started about 3 weeks ago by a group of individuals tired with the way Wall Street have manipulated the system and the negative way their actions have affected the economy.
