Photos and Video of Occupy Wall Street's March to Union Square

Panorama of Occupy Wall Street protesters in Union Square

On Saturday, September 24th, Occupy Wall Street had planned a protest, and the turn out was impressive. Watch the video below as the march reaches Union Square:

There were far more protesters taking part in the march than had been seen during the past week, and they were making their presence known by marching in the streets, against the flow of traffic, and causing the NYPD to close intersections and move traffic out of the way.

After the protest reached Union Square and clashed with police (ABC7 / NY Daily News), the NYPD helicopter began to circle Union Square and the police presence multiplied:

Later in the day, as the protesters made their way back to Zuccotti Park, the police presence remained high, and there was tension in the air between the police and protesters for a few hours until night fell and the scene calmed down.
