Wall Street is today braced for its first major demonstration in a year, as hundreds of people are expected to take to the streets to mark the first anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
A series of "sit-ins" are planned throughout New York's financial district from about 7:30am, according to the organisers' website. The New York Stock Exchange, the headquarters of bailed-out insurer AIG and the New York Federal Reserve are expected to be among the targets.
Monday's action follows a series of largely peaceful marches over the weekend in New York, where more than 200 people descended on Zuccotti Park near Wall Street. A year ago today, demonstrators first occupied Zuccotti Park in a bid to draw attention to rising income inequality in the US and a raft of other issues, including America's involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The protesters were evicted from the park by New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg last November. The occupation became the symbolic focus for similar protests across the US and the rest of the world, including London. Although the movement lacked a clear set of policy demands, it did briefly threaten last autumn to become a

Looks like the whole world is looking for a Savior...in all the wrong places....
Do the police or fire department there have water cannons that they can add soap to? Like a car wash. That’d kill two birds with one stone.
Now that they’re back from sun holiday in the Caribbean or Europe with Mummy and Daddy it’s time to get back to bitching about how bad their lives suck.
They should be completely ignored instead of the media glorifying them, should have been that way from the beginning. With real terrorist protesters crazy in the mideast, there is no time to waste on these assholes.
College campuses are back in session. The paid professional agitators are looking to tag some freshman tail.
As in “high school freshman” you mean?
Jackie Barcliff: Occupy Wall Street protester charged with two rapes
These must be some of the same kids I would see back in the ‘90’s throwing temper tantrums in the supermarkets and department stores.
Zuccattii Park? More of the same?
OWS Zuccattii Park activist Barcliff charged with rape & attempted murder. Threw victim over rail fell 20’, broke pelvis & leg.
He is also charged with raping a 14 year old girl.
Remember OWS and Arab Spring are both sides of Obozo’s community organizing. One within the U.S. and the other on a foreign turf.
Remember, these people are paid to demonstrate and make noise. Hard core lefties running this and useful street idiots filling in to make it look credible.
Remember, November is Coming! And Obozo Must GO!
Yep, and attempted murder. Threw victim over the rail and she fell 20 feet. Broke her pelvis and leg.
Obozo MUST GO!
I was driving to work this morning and heard that the occutards were planning demonstrations in front of certain corporate facilities. I wasnt surprised to find a group of demonstrators picketing in front of a research lab that works on developing nuclear propulsion systems for submarines (a frequent target for peaceniks). So I slow down and flip them the bird as I go by which caused an eruption of jeers (mission accomplished). I get into work and find out it wasn’t the Occutards picketing, but the security workers union (these guys carry M16s on duty). Oops.
I hope the police have their water cannons loaded with Lysol and clorox to “cleanse” the filthy masses.
OWS is the face of the Democrat War on Women.
NOW, Sandra Get-Fluked, et al are stone silent on the issue.
It is a rapists’ protest movement. Even those who do not actually commit rapes shield the rapists from prosecution and bully the women into not going to the authorities.
