The Occupy Wall Street movement entered what is promising to be the most contentious day yet on Thursday.
Demonstrators have vowed to "shut down Wall Street," blocking traffic on major roadways leading to the financial district. Police have already arrested some protestors who were sitting, blocking traffic. The crowd was reportedly chanting "all day, all week, shut down Wall Street."
The newest developments come after the city and park owners had tents and sleeping bags removed on Tuesday.
Demonstrators have vowed to block traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge, among other avenues to the financial center.
As the day's events unfold, we ask you: are protestors going to far? Does blocking roadways hurt more than just those working on Wall Street, and will it have an adverse affect on the economy? Is that, in your opinion, a good thing? Is it necessary for the protestors to do so in reaction to their encampment being taken down?
