PHOTOS: Protesters try to reoccupy Zuccotti Park

At least one person was arrested after protesters began tearing down police barriers outside Zuccotti Park.

Things got heated between protesters and police this morning as a crowd of hundreds marched back to Zuccottt Park demanding re-entry.

Earlier in the morning, attorneys with the National Lawyers Guild went to the park with a court order telling the city to let the protesters return, but officers and barriers remained at the park’s perimeter, prohibiting anyone from entering. Attorneys for the movement are in court again this afternoon to decide whether the protesters’ right to demonstrate should include use of tents and tarps in the park

As hundreds of protesters chanted, “You are breaking the law,” some of them began pulling police barriers apart, as officers wrestled with them to keep them in place. At least one person was arrested.

The crowd continued to march and chant around Zuccotti Park, many protesters hopping the first line of police barriers, trying to inch their way into the park. The mood at the scene was tense as many protesters became agitated with
police, yelling and accusing officers of breaking the law.

At one point, a group of officers with fistfuls of zip-tie handcuffs flooded the now-vacant park.

One protester, Lily, said the decision to evict occupiers from Zuccotti Park will only make things “worse for Thursday.”

“The plan right now is to go down onto Wall Street on Thursday and some people are planning to disrupt the proceedings down there,” said Lily, who did not want to give her last name.

She would not go into further detail about Occupy Wall Street’s planned day of action, though the movement’s website indicates protesters are planning to march to the New York Stock Exchange.
