Sep. 17, 2012: At about 9 AM, as hundreds of protesters marched up the sidewalk on Broadway, the NYPD suddenly lunged into the crowd and separated the march into halves (and later chopped those into smaller pieces, too). Here, a few Occupy Wall Street protesters are seen arrested, but then the NYPD refuses to let the march continue up the sidewalk. After about another thirty seconds or so (fast-forwarded), the protesters begin to chant the NYPD “is blocking pedestrian traffic,” the very ‘criminal’ act that we protesters are most often charged with by them. Under pressure, the NYPD retreats and lets the march proceed!
