On Monday, New York City police arrested dozens of protesters who had gathered in the city's financial district to mark the one-year anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement. During attempts to surround the New York Stock Exchange, about 1,000 demonstrators were thwarted by police, and dozens of arrests were made by mid-morning. The small number of protesters — in comparison to the several thousand that convened last year — highlights "the challenge the movement has faced in trying to sustain momentum after sparking a national conversation about economic inequality last fall."
