Thousands occupy Wall Street against wealthy banksters

 

On Saturday, the 17th of September, thousands of protesters swarmed into Wall Street with the intention of occupying it indefinately. Although a march on the New York Stock exchange was blocked by police barricades and cops protecting the immediate area, protesters swarmed the surrounding area. A police closure of the streets surrounding the Stock Exchange will be very disruptive if if continues into the workweek. With Wall street getting ever richer and everyone else getting ever poorer, people have had enough.
