Occupy Wall Street Protests: 300 arrested in NY

[Full Story: BBC USA & Canada] 18 Nov

Thursday was a day of protests and arrests. While thousands protesters marched towards NY's Brooklyn Bridge as a mark of solidarity rallies across USA, police had a field day of stuffing their vans with protesters. At least 300 have been reported arrested only in NY. In the scuffles between police and the 99%, five police officials have also been injured.

Thursday's nationwide protests were seen as a test of Occupy Wall Street's momentum, as the grassroots movement against economic equality marked two months since it began, reports BBC.
