NEW YORK — Several thousand Occupy Wall Street protesters have marched to New York City's Washington Square Park for a peaceful general assembly.
Demonstrators marched Saturday from Manhattan's Zuccotti Park, the group's unofficial headquarters where protesters have been camped out for the last 22 days. The trek was peaceful and orderly.
On Wednesday, dozens were arrested when thousands marched on Wall Street in their biggest show of support yet. Last Saturday, 700 people were arrested after they spilled onto the roadway while crossing the Brooklyn Bridge.
Protesters are speaking out against corporate greed and the gap between the rich and poor. They say they have no leaders and are making decisions by consensus.
Supporters have donated food, clothing and medical supplies. Some drop off their offerings, while others have mailed them.
