Occupy Wall Street protesters rallied in New York City's Grand Central Terminal to call attention to a law signed by President Barack Obama that they say could curb civil liberties.
The protesters gathered in the main concourse of the station Tuesday where they held a noisy rally as hundreds of commuters rushed by.
Twitter reports indicate approximately three arrests related to the Grand Central rally.
