Post image for 180+ arrests on Occupy Wall St. anniversary — in picturesPolice crackdown on Occupy continues as over 180 are arrested during the peaceful celebration of the movement’s first anniversary in Lower Manhattan.Here’s an interesting statistic, via the non-profit group St. Pete for Peace, which runs the website Occupy Arrests:Total amount of Occupy protesters arrested nationwide since the birth of the movement one year ago: at least 7,618, including 181 in New York yesterday. Total amount of bankers convicted since Wall Street’s suprime mortgage fraud and derivatives swindle nearly brought the global economy to its knees and forced the 99% to bail out the 1% to the tune of trillions of dollars: 0. This is the injustice we are fighting. Once again, Paul Weiskel‘s photos speak volumes.
