NEW YORK — About 300 people have gathered near Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan as part of a planned nationwide protest marking two months since the Occupy Wall Street movement began.
The New York City protesters are gathering on the east side of Broadway, across the street from Zuccotti Park. Police with megaphones are ordering them to stay on the sidewalk as they begin their march toward the nearby New York Stock Exchange.
Planners have said they want to march to Wall Street to mark the date.
Demonstrators in New York City and around the country are promising mass gatherings Thursday in support of the cause.
