Occupy Wall Street's May Day Protest In 40 Images
A picture log of the May 1st, 2012 protest that was loud, impressive, and mostly sent a lot mixed signals. See for yourself!
Bryant Park, the morning meeting spot where the crowd gathered until 2 p.m.
Union Square, the afternoon gathering area where the masses grew until the 5:30 p.m. march down Broadway.
Broadway, the marching zone. The path was heavily monitored by Police who, to their credit, really kept their cool this time.
