Hundreds Of Occupy Wall Streeters Re-Occupied Zuccotti Park Yesterday

We were surprised when we walked by Zuccotti Park yesterday to see hundreds of protesters from the Occupy Wall Street movement had re-occupied their former Financial District headquarters.

The Occupiers were evicted from Zuccotti Park last November and we haven’t seen a large crowd in the park in a while.     

According to NY1 News, at least two demonstrators were arrested for disorderly conduct and trespassing yesterday.  

Several of protesters in the park had marched a symbolic 99 miles from Philadelphia to New York, NY1 reported.  

According to the Associated Press, the six-day march by the a group calling themselves the “Occupy Guitarmy” from Liberty Bell to Zuccotti was to commemorate the 100th birthday of the late singer/songwriter Woody Guthrie, who is famous for writing “This Land Is Your Land.” 

Here’s what we saw when we walked by the park yesterday at around 7 p.m.  We’ve also included some images from this morning.
