Police arrest more than 700 hundred from the Occupy Wall Street protest who took to the roadway as they tried to cross the Brooklyn Bridge on Saturday afternoon. The police said it was "the marchers´choice" that led to the enforcement action. Protesters banged drums and chanted "The whole world is watching" as the police moved in. Read more here.
A video on the You Tube page of a group called We are Change shows some of the arrests.

The protest campaign (It uses the hashtag #occupywallstreet on the microblogging site Twitter) began in July with the launch of a simple campaign website calling for a march and a sit-in at the New York Stock Exchange. Over the past two weeks, demonstrations have addressed various issues, including police brutality, union busting and the economy, the group said.
