Occupy returns to the centre of it all – in pictures

April 17, 2012

Camped outside Federal Hall and the Stock Exchange, dozens of protesters now spend their nights under right next the offices of the most important bankers in the US. Their arrival, which coincides with the warm weather, has led to more talk about police brutality and the rights of protesters to sleep on a sidewalk than on the problems of political and economic inequalities in the United States. Protesters promise to bring in May 1 with a bang, already calling for a general strike. Though too early to forecast its turnout, it may represent a significant turnout of people, which may serve as a much needed impetus to revive a movement that has largely stalled since its removal from Zuccotti Park on November 15.
