Police arrest 80 Wall Street protestors

At least 80 people protesting in New York against the US financial system and Wall Street practices were arrested Saturday in the first big crackdown since demonstrators began camping on city streets a week ago.
One person was charged with assaulting a police officer and one officer suffered a shoulder injury, the department spokesman said. Footage on the site showed police corralling a crowd with orange plastic mesh.
The Occupy Wall Street protest began on September 17. They say they are motivated by anger against the huge disparity between the very rich and the growing number of people struggling in the aftermath of the US financial crisis and recession.
