Protesters back in NY park for Occupy Wall Street anniversary
By Chris Francescani | Reuters 30 mins ago
NEW YORK (Reuters) - More than 200 protesters gathered on Saturday in New York's Zuccotti Park to mark the six-month anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement and clashed with police, resulting in several arrests and three officers injured, officials said.
At least four people were arrested, according to organizers.
Police would not confirm the arrests but said three officers suffered injuries. Police did not provide any details as to the extent of the injuries.
Organizers vowed that Saturday's rally was the first of several events planned to protest economic injustice. Critics say the Occupy movement lacks demands and direction and has lost momentum.
Protester Paul Sylvester, 24, of Massachusetts said he was "thrilled" to be back at the park but said he hoped the movement would begin to crystallize around specific goals.

If we had some real judges left in this country, they’d tell these freeloading fleabaggers to get a job or be thrown in jail. They are nothing but a burden on America.
It’s “200” protesters so it must be 100 then as Rooters tend to inflate their lefty numbers..
I think it’s the warm weather.
