Protesters participating in the Occupy Wall Street campaign are still going strong after nearly two weeks, but the NYPD is cracking down, as they arrested 700 protesters on the Brooklyn Bridge Saturday.
Protesters gathered by the hundreds in New York's Zuccotti Park to fight for injustices including student loans, the foreclosure crisis, work place discrimination and show no signs of slowdown, which is angering police in the area. The group, who've labeled themselves an American revolution have made plans to stay in the park indefinitely in order to raise awarness and change unfair government practices.
According to police, the problem with protesters in the area is not that they are rebelling against the government, but they aren't following regulations set up to stay off the roadways. This was the result of several hundred arrests made at the Brooklyn Bridge, as some demonstrators spilled onto the roadway Saturday night after being told to stay on the pedestrian pathway.
