Occupy Wall Street Hits 4 Continents

The struggle against "the man" continues. Protests have spread to everywhere from Sydney, London, Rome, and Hong Kong. Meanwhile, Chicago Police arrested 175 after protesters refused to leave Grant Park after it closed. Other protests sprang up around the world as Occupy Wall Street's global movement rages on one month after the original demonstrations. New York police arrested 14 people overnight for violating a midnight curfew at the iconic Washington Square Park, in addition to the 70 arrests Saturday when thousands stormed Times Square. The movement's Zuccotti Park branch has reportedly amassed $230,000 and a warehouse of supplies in preparation for a long haul. Dozens more curfew arrests were made in cities such as Phoenix and Minneapolis. Protesters in London are also digging in, setting up tents in the city center and vowing to stay indefinitely.
