Photographs of Wall Street Global Protests from around the World
[ad#link-unit-post]
In most of the countries there is a sad fact that wealth only rounds only in few hands and most people have spent a life full of pain. In this regard global protests against economic prejudice gripped cities over the weekend, predominantly. Unity with Spain’s “Indignant” and New York’s “Occupy Wall Street” strikers took protests over the attentiveness of wealth in the hands of a few and the worldwide economic crisis to cities from Hong Kong to Tulsa. So, in this regard I collect a picture account to make a complete sketch about those protests below you can see.

 Global Protests

A man signs a huge banner during Occupy DC anti-corporations protest at Freedom Plaza in Washington, DC Oct. 10. A four-day protest in Washington to reclaim American politics for the people went into overtime, its participants vowing to stay put despite the expiry of their permit. The Stop the Machine occupation of Freedom Plaza is one of two ongoing protests in the capital, alongside the like-minded but more youthful Occupy DC sit-in, now in its 10th day. Occupy DC, inspired by the much bigger Occupy Wall Street movement in New York, meanwhile, continued to draw several dozen people every day to McPherson Square, in the shadows of big lobbying firms.

The activists have been gradually converging on the financial district over the past two weeks to rally against the influence of corporate money in politics among a host of other issues. Over 700 people were arrested last weekend on the Brooklyn Bridge after temporarily blocking traffic.

And with no end in sight, the cost of constant police surveillance will continue to rise at a time when Mayor Michael Bloomberg has ordered citywide budget cuts.
