Occupy Wall Street’s Last Hurrah?
Occupy Wall Street protesters marked the six-month anniversary of the movement by attempting to re-occupy Zuccotti Park. An estimated 300 protesters gathered before police moved in before midnight, arresting dozens of individuals. Police cleared the park within 20 minutes, either through arrest or removal.
The Occupy movement’s last stand in Zuccotti Park was last November. When it disbanded, it signaled the dwindling of the movement in other cities across the United States. Since then, the only city to see a significant number of protestors was Washington D.C., which evicted the movement from its parks in late January.
