700 Arrested on Brooklyn Bridge

On October 1, 2011, about 700 protesters were arrested on the Brooklyn Bridge. Starting at Zucotti Park, what had started as a march throughout lower Manhattan grew to a crowd of thousands. Whether by police manipulation, crowd choice, or what may have been spontaneous events, the march found itself on the Brooklyn Bridge, where protestors faced off against the NYPD. Nearly haflway across the bridge, the officers pen in the crowd and began arresting hundreds of people. Those arrested where shipped of to precincts across Brooklyn, and it was days before they were all released.

 

This was the second time police clashed with the protestors., by this point about 780 people had been arrested.
