We certainly couldn’t start our walk across the bridge without a few arrests, so Councilman Jumanne Williams started things off by getting arrested with 98 other people. No resistance and it stayed peaceful. Members of United Together formed lines to keep people off roadways and led them to the Brooklyn Bridge walkway, on a beautiful evening for a walk across the bridge. Thousands flowed onto the bridge carrying signs and chanting.
People from Occupy Wall Street shined a projector onto the Verizon Building with their slogans. Protestors cheered and were reinvigorated after a very long day of demonstrating.
The walk up the bridge was colorful and crowded. At the top of the bridge, people were taking breaks and looking out onto the skyline. They were all heading to Brooklyn.
99 members of the 99 Percent arrested.
The NYPD must hate it when they give the movement their symbolism.
