Occupy Wall Street movement hits 2-month mark

THE BRONX - Occupy Wall Street descended on The Bronx today as the two-month movement that started in lower Manhattan launched what it called a day of action.

At least 175 people were arrested during clashes between police officers and protesters in Manhattan.

The day of action had been planned before the city and park owners cracked down on the two-month-old encampment in Zuccotti Park, clearing out tents, tarps and sleeping bags. Similar camps have sprung up across the U.S. but face increasing pressure from local authorities, who point to health and safety concerns.
