'Occupy Wall Street' protesters still camped out at park
NEW YORK (KABC) -- Demonstrators with the "Occupy Wall Street" movement are still camping out at a New York city park, not far from the New York Stock Exchange.
As the anti-greed protests moves into its fourth week, the movement is getting some high-profile support from Reverend Al Sharpton. He said he will do his radio show from Zuccotti Park on Monday.
Protesters are demonstrating against the income inequality in the United States, saying the "99 Percent" is everyone who is not among the richest 1 percent of Americans. They have argued that economic policies and corporate greed have helped the 1 percent get richer.
The hacker group Anonymous threatened to shut down the New York Stock Exchange website on Monday in retaliation for the hundreds who have been arrested for protesting.
Over the weekend, another protest popped up in Washington, D.C., just outside the White House, where a man was arrested for throwing a shoe that hit a Secret Service agent.
