More than 5,000 people marched towards the Brooklyn Bridge, and hundreds marched onto its pedestrian area and car lanes, taking over part of the bridge. Traffic into Brooklyn was stopped by the police for roughly two hours. October 1, 2011 October 6, 2011 About 5,000 protesters marched in Portland, Oregon.

The White House issued a statement saying Obama is working for the interests of the 99%.
