Sep. 16, 2012: At around 11am, a march of several hundred persons opposing the Spectra Pipeline and hydrofracking converge with members of Code Pink in front of a Bank of America branch near Union Square to “Bust Up the Banks.” As members of Code Pink try and “bust up” Bank of America—by throwing brassieres at the institution—the NYPD intervenes, ripping bras out of women’s hands and arresting at least two Code Pink members.

500 or more Occupy revelers march from Washington Square Park to their former home in Zucotti to kick off the Occupied Anniversary Party. 26 were arrested mostly through snatch and grab terrorist tactics. Those arrested had done nothing wrong, were walking peacefully on the sidewalk with their friends. Squads of terrorists pushed through the peaceful crowd to man handle and steal people.
