Occupy Wall Street protesters in New York took to the streets last night in response to the violent clash between police and the Occupy Oakland movement earlier this week.
Last night's march in NYC was prompted by the incident where more than 1,000 activists were driven out of an Oakland plaza by police. 24-year-old Scott Olsen, a former U.S. Marine, was critically injured during the clash.
Protesters who have been camped out in Zuccotti Park began marching through the downtown area last night before breaking off into several routes through Soho, Greenwich Village and Union Square while chanting, "New York is Oakland, Oakland is New York," Gothamist reports.
Video posted on YouTube shows some protesters knocking over barricades and trashing Franklin Street in Tribeca.
At least 10 protesters were arrested during the march.
