More than 1,000 people staged a large rally over the weekend near Wall Street in New York. The protesters had planned to “occupy” Wall Street, but police blocked all the streets near the New York Stock Exchange and Federal Hall in Lower Manhattan.

“A lot of us feel there is a large crisis in our economy and a lot of it is caused by the folks who do business here,” one protester told the New York Daily News.

The New York Times reported that two people wearing bandannas over their faces were taken into custody after trying to enter the building that houses Bank of America offices.
