Those who participated in the march uptown describe NYPD actions to stop their progress with police cars and metal barricades.   At each check-point the marchers simply changed directions or went around and even over the obstacles.

At one point, approaching Union Square, the NYPD cut the protesters off and made a mass arrest of some 90 or more marchers.   Other marchers were arrested when, penned in a distance away, they began chanting, “Let them go!” bringing the total to over 100.

Video shows brutal arrests involving netting numbers of protesters and the use of pepper spray to subdue others.   Police sources said the arrests were mainly for obstructing traffic.

Associated Press later reported “about 80 people have been arrested as demonstrators who were camped out near the New York Stock Exchange marched through lower Manhattan.”

Earlier, an unsigned eviction notice had been circulated at Liberty Plaza a.ka. Zuccotti Park the center of the occupation.

Police also began a ban on umbrellas, sleeping bags, camping equipment and bicycles on top of their previous ban on tents and tarps.  (What’s next raincoats, ponchos and shoes?)
