Several hundred Occupy Wall Street activists marched through Manhattan on Saturday to protest against what they say is police repression as they try to revive their movement.
Several demonstrators were arrested along the route of the march in scuffles with New York police, who deployed in large numbers to keep activists on sidewalks.
“There were a few arrests, but we don’t have a final number yet,” an NYPD spokeswoman said.
Skirmishes between police and Occupy protesters, who say they represent America’s “99 percent” against a ruling “one percent,” have become near daily occurrences in New York since the spring weather turned warm in recent days.
