Flood Wall Street

Over 100 protesters were arrested in lower Manhattan this week following a direct action protest against Wall Street's role in climate change.

Following the massive People's Climate March in New York on September 22, VICE News spent a day with protesters at the Flood Wall Street direct action demonstration in lower Manhattan, where hundreds gathered to disrupt business as usual and highlight the financial sector's role in climate change. The event was also an occasion for activists with the Occupy Wall Street movement to regroup and return to the streets, three years after those protests started. On Monday, many Flood Wall Street protesters planned to block traffic and continue the disruption until being forcibly removed by police. The demonstration resulted in over 100 arrests.
