Occupy Wall Street Protesters Remain Defiant After Brooklyn Bridge Arrests (PHOTOS)


NEW YORK -- The day after the police took custody of an estimated 700 marchers on the Brooklyn Bridge, protesters in Lower Manhattan's Zuccotti Park said those arrests would only strengthen their resolve to demonstrate against corporate power.

The park, renamed Liberty Square by some protesters, was packed on Sunday afternoon with hundreds of tourists, well-wishers, musicians, union members and mostly younger protesters who had slept through the cold, rainy night in well-worn sleeping bags.

The well-stocked kitchen, the constant video livestream and the trickle of people arriving in labor union t-shirts and uniforms attested to the increasing sophistication of the operation. Even Joseph Stiglitz, a Nobel Prize winner and fierce critic of free-market economics, made an appearance to give demonstrators a pep talk.
