Occupy Wall Street protesters plan new rally

Occupy Wall Street protesters have planned a fresh rally in New York, in defiance of the police, which cracked down on demonstrators across the country, Press TV reports.
According to organizers, the rally is to be held on Saturday at City Hall Park in New York City, to voice opposition to the nationwide mass arrests and brutal treatment of protesters by police.
The recent wounding of the 24-year-old former US soldier, Scott Olsen by California police has also led to calls for a general strike by demonstrators.
US police arrested thousands of people since the 'Occupy' movement emerged on September 17th. The OWS movement started after a group of people gathered in New York's financial district under the motto of 'Occupy Wall Street,' to protest corruption, poverty as well as social inequality in the US.
The new wave of police raids on protest rallies against “corporate greed, arrogance and power” has prompted speculation that American authorities are losing patience with expanding demonstrations in the country.
The movement has sparked similar protests across the world, including Australia, Britain, Germany, Italy, Spain, Ireland, and Portugal.
