Top Story on the BBC:

About 400 people from the Occupy Wall Street protest movement have been arrested on New York City's Brooklyn Bridge, police say.

Some of the protesters said police had allowed them on to the roadway and were escorting them across when they were surrounded and the arrests began.

I Wonder how long it will be before they are instructed to sideline the Reports on this.

Latest news, 700+ arrested.

So much for freedom of expression.

The only way medias cover the protests is if protesters do things like that, like blocking a bridge. More power to them.

What makes me mad enough to spit is that on May 1 2006 a quarter of a million illegal aliens rallied in Los Angeles and the Police would not say "Boo" to them. This is a peaceful assembly of 'Legal' american citizens and they are getting treated like terrorists.

That is just wrong.

worker, blasted the pedestrians. “I work my a** off all day, and these goddamned hippies close down the Brooklyn Bridge so I can’t get home?” he said. “This ain’t right!”

Sounds like the worker is brainwashed by sean hannity since he calls them hippies
those people arent hippies well atleast not all of them even kids are protesting.

I guess he was watching fox news sean hannity.

I have been watching the live feed all day and the person filming did not record the people entering the bridge but he said they wear block in by police and forced onto the bridge so that they could be arrested.

No use posting that on here, quite a few ATS members still have the wool over their eyes. They would not see the truth even if it was right in front of their faces.

Btw I believe you, I myself was watching the live feed on and off all yesterday and last night. The NYPD, who are in the pockets on JP Morgan, caused this not the protestors.

There is your truth, oh someone dare call that dude a liar.

You all have a great deal to learn from history.

It is likely that these protests will turn into bloodshed.

People are having a field day on the SKY NEWS Website. Criticizing sky news, for not covering the Occupation Of Wall-street since it had started. Those of you whom think now the eyes of the world are not on your country. THINK AGAIN!

No, the world is laughing at the stupid Americans getting arrested for being on the road - most people know the road is for cars, the footpath for pedestrians - apparently some stupid yanks do not!

Also a few people protesting about goodness knows what is not making the international news much as it is not a interesting story - "Lefties protesting about ?" is normal.

Realls? so 0.00651% of the USA, 0.000295% of the world is watching.... you really think that is a significant number?

105.9 million people watched the last episode of a TV show, but only 20,000 are interested in a silly protest!

Maybe, it's because the Yankees are playing. You don't really think the people are gonna go to Brooklyn, when the Bronx is rockin', do you?
hahahahahah Come on now, get YOUR priorities straight. (sarcasm)

People keep mentioning, that Global Consciousness is what's happening...but, how do you know...TPTB aren't making these events? How can we be CERTAIN this isn't some type of Psy-op? And another question: why are there so many YOUNG PEOPLE? Shouldn't people in their mid 30's to early 50's be the ones protesting?
