The first video shows what appears to be the start of the walk. In it a number of spectators are shown jumping down and joining the main body of protesters’. The footage lends credence to Anonymous’ and the Occupy Wall Street protesters previous claims that its core numbers had grown during the Brooklyn Bridge march.
The third video shows the protesters blocking a road, shouting the slogan “this is a peaceful protest.”
The Brooklyn Bridge arrests all occurred just as Occupy Wall Street entered its third week. The exact reasons for each arrest remain vague. The move from Wall Street to march across the Brooklyn Bridge, was reportedly planned on Saturday. While initially peaceful, reports suggest that clashes between protesters and the police occurred after a number of the marchers ignored police warnings to use a pedestrian pathway.
Though exact numbers remain vague a number of media outlets have since reported that of the 700 initially arrested, only around 20 individuals are still being held.
The latest clash follows a number of reports suggestingNew Yorkpolice had been using increasingly aggressive tactics against the seemingly peaceful protesters. Reports by both protesters and passers-by have since emerged suggesting the tactics have led to heightened tensions between police and the protesters.
