Wall Street protesters move to Times Square

Over five thousand people protested against austerity and corporate greed. Although the New York Police Force acted fast and arrested 69 people to calm things down, the protest didn't stop and it was moved to Times Square.

Protests likes this are not a new thing. Recently similar protests were seen all over the world (see the protest from Rome where 70 people were injured after a short rally soon became a series of street battles)

During the protest people chanted: "We got sold out, banks got bailed out" and "All day, all week, occupy Wall Street."

Staff at Citibank near Washington Square Park called police because "very disruptive" protesters "refused to leave after being repeatedly asked," the bank said.

"The police asked the branch staff to close the branch until the protesters could be removed."
