Wall Street Protester: Check Out How The Police Fenced Us In On The Brooklyn Bridge

wall street protests brooklyn bridge

There is debate as to whether the NYPD gave Occupy Wall Street protestors fair warning of how authorities would react if the protestors crossed the Brooklyn Bridge on Saturday.

Regardless, 700 of them, including a New York Times reporter, were arrested after the police fenced the crowd in.

We’re lucky enough to have been in touch with some of the people in the thick of the crowd taking pictures of what was going on. One of them, Jenna Pope, is allowing us to publish her pictures of the NYPD fence-in so you can see what it was like for yourself.

As you can see, the crowd's pretty big

At this point, its early and you can't see what the NYPD is organising

People are climbing up the bridge (see the top left)

Here come the cops

And the fence starts..

Protestors started singing as they waited for the police to let them out of the fence

Some people were allowed to leave

But most ended up waiting on the bridge for hours as the police cleared people out

That's it! For those who weren't arrested, the experience was pretty tame. Check out the protest the Friday before...
