New York braces for Occupy Wall Street march today

An OWS protester cheers after he was let back into Zuccotti Park Tuesday night.

Protesters say they are prepared to be arrested en masse for their cause today.

Approximately 25 Occupy Wall Street members met at 60 Wall Street yesterday to discuss their willingness to be arrested when they take to the streets this morning as part of their Day of Action.

The protesters will attempt to march to the New York Stock Exchange at 7 a.m. On their way, they say they will “confront Wall Street with the stories of people on the frontlines of economic injustice,” according to OccupyWallSt.org.

The NYPD and the MTA are preparing for the worst. Last night more than 20 NYPD squad cars gathered at Battery Park to prepare for the protesters’ march. Department of Homeland Security vehicles and two NYPD mobile command units — vans carrying officers and police technology — were also on hand.

“The protesters are calling for a massive event aimed at disrupting major parts of the city,” Deputy Mayor Howard Wolfson said yesterday.

“Everything that we have seen and heard suggests that we may have tens of thousands of people tomorrow protesting,” he added.
