Chicago Police Arrest More Occupy Wall Street Protesters


The midwestern U.S. city of Chicago has been the scene of another protest linked to the Occupy Wall Street movement.

About 130 protesters were arrested early Sunday for their failure to leave the city’s Grant Park after closing time.

Sunday’s arrests came one week after another 175 protesters were arrested for a similar act of disobedience in Chicago.

The Occupy Wall Street movement, launched in New York City more than a month ago, has led to demonstrations in several U.S. cities and across the globe.

Those involved decry what they see as corporate greed and the increasing gap between rich and poor.
