Police say some demonstrators spilled onto the roadway Saturday night after being told to stay on the pedestrian pathway.

Occupy Wall Street protesters march from Liberty Plaza to the Brooklyn Bridge on the afternoon of Saturday, October 1, 2011. Blocked by the police from crossing the footpath, a large group of protesters chose the roadbed, which is reserved for cars. The arrests seen in this video happened between around 4:30 and 5 p.m.

  2. here is the real sad fact: those who organized and participated on those wall street demos, bring in hundreds at a time, cannot get more than a few handful to come out to demand an end to the occupations of iraq and afghanistan and a drastic cut in our military spending ( $ 563 BILLION last year alone, not counting the black budget ) .
    oh yes, once or twice a year the folks will come out, as with this next Peace rally planned for October in DC. other than that, i myself here in central florida can only attract ONE 83 year old man to join me each tuesday for ONE HOUR only!

    ask yourselves why the Wall street protests attract so many compared to the anti empire spending and anti occupation demos. could it be that Move On.org and other Democratic Party ‘ front groups ‘ are behind it? after all, the real concern they all have is to get Democrats elected and re-elected in 2012… especially the ‘ Empire stooge ‘ Barack.

  10. “Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness – and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe.

    The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling – their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability.

    Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them.

    Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”

    ― Arundhati Roy, War Talk
