Participants at the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations are entering their 10th day camping out in the financial district of New York City. Several hundred activists have been gathering near Wall Street since September 17, protesting the mortgage crisis, bank bailouts, wealth inequality and the cost of war, among other things. More than 80 people were arrested Saturday for disorderly conduct and blocking traffic when they marched from Zuccotti Park to Union Square. Photo: Flickr/David Shankbone
