arrest those who defied the law. People shouted “the whole world is watching,”

According to Rueters;"A lot of media is saying that Occupy is dying down, but I think the fact that over 100 people were arrested this morning shows that Occupy is still part of the conversation," said one protester, Caleb Maupin, 24, of Queens.
"We've been locked out, people my age don't have much chance of getting a job, so we have to do something to get people's attention," Maupin said.
