More arrests as Occupy Wall Street protests enter 30th day

Protesters banged drums and chanted after police pushed them out of a New York park Sunday, marking the 30th day since the outcry over income disparities started.

Occupy Wall Street protesters spilled into nearby streets as riot police circled a fountain and stood guard at entrances leading to Washington Square Park.

Demonstrators wandered into the night, chanting.

"We are the 99%," they said. "This is what democracy looks like."

At least 14 people were arrested for violating the park's midnight curfew by sitting in a fountain with no water in it.

"It was a classic peaceful sit in," said Paul Browne, the deputy police commissioner.

The park protests came hours after thousands marched to the city's iconic Times Square on Saturday night, hoisting signs and chanting.

Forty-two people were arrested in Times Square, bringing the total number arrested in the city Saturday to 70, Browne said.

      Last time I checked DC had the most anti weapon laws on the books. You are not allowed to own a firearm in the DC area.
