please take a look to my 2 other photographic essays concerning #OccupyWallStreet here and here
The movement #OccupyWallStreet also known as #TakeWallStreet is clearly growing since their first protest last Saturday (07/19/2011).
Today, they were in Union Square, not "only" marching around the Financial District.
Concerning the photos you will see below, I can testify about the blond woman in the first photos that she only shouted "Take the streets" and nothing else and that was the only reason the New York City Police Department (NYPD) arrested her so brutally
I don't know why they arrested the others on the photos.
The NYPD communicated to the press that they arrested 85 people .. most of them because were blocking the traffic. More official information here
So, I let you think and don't be afraid
