#OccupyWallStreet Group to Continue Protests After Mass Arrests

A protester reacts as he is arrested on the Brooklyn Bridge during an 'Occupy Wall Street' protest in New York October 1, 2011.

Protesters decrying corporate greed and other grievances maintained a presence in New York City’s financial district Sunday, one day after more than 700 of them were arrested as they attempted to march across the Brooklyn Bridge.

The group “Occupy Wall Street” has been camped out for two weeks. On Saturday, the Brooklyn Bridge was shut down for several hours as protesters rallied against what they said was corporate greed, social inequality and other issues.

New York police said the protesters were arrested when they broke off from the bridge’s pedestrian lane and onto the roadway, blocking traffic. The majority were issued citations for disorderly conduct and released.
