Occupy Wall Street is out and about celebrating their 6 month anniversary with a march, and they've got beautiful weather for it, too. Several "mic checks" already mentioning the "American Spring," and a "Resurgence" of the movement, and a powerful year.

Seems there has already been some trouble with the NYPD. According to Twitter reports, protesters have already been arrested for "standing on the sidewalk too long."

Via livestream, I'm hearing that the earlier skirmish with police began because a man was handing out fliers, there was some sort of struggle that ended with the man with the fliers demanding an apology from one of the cops.

Tim Pool just tweeted, "Cop just approached a journalist and said "You're laughing now, you werent laughing when you got arrested."

I'll add an update later. If the rumors are correct, the occupiers plan to attempt to re-take Zuccotti Park.

Tim mentioned possibly taking a break, so here's Global Revolution's livestream as well:
