Re-Occupy Wall Street Live Stream


New York City police have begun removing Occupy Wall Street protesters who scaled a chain-link fence leading to a church-owned lot they want to use as a camp site.
Protesters used a wooden ladder to scale the fence Saturday. One man wearing a Santa suit stood among the protesters on the ladder as others cheered. While officers made arrests, protesters chanted obscenities and screamed: “Make them catch you!” About a thousand people gathered across the street at a city-owned park.


Protesters had gathered for speeches, live music and performances today in Duarte Square Park in New York’s TriBeCa neighborhood. Part of the half-block parcel is city-owned public land, while the other portion belongs to Trinity Wall Street, a nonprofit religious organization and one of the city’s largest real estate holders. Trinity hasn’t granted protesters permission for access.
