Local media in New York reports that a large number of Occupy Wall Street protesters were arrested this afternoon near Union Square in Lower Manhattan.

“A spokesman for the protesters claimed more than 50 were arrested. The NYPD has not responded to WNYC’s request for comment,” WNYC reported at 5:32 PM EST.

“Protesters wielding signs that demanded ‘End the Fed’ and other anti-Wall St slogans marched up Fifth Avenue near Union Square on Saturday, drawing a significant police presence and snarling traffic in the neighborhood,” Chris Bannon writes for the radio station.

BuzzFeed puts the number arrested at around 80. “While the NYPD maintains that they neither own nor use tear gas, some have stepped forward to confirm that they were pepper-sprayed. In at least one video, a man is violently tackled for simply talking to an officer,” writes Chris Menning for the website.

NY cops have a reputation for man-handling non-violent protesters. In the second video here, New York City’s finest corral a number of female protesters and then pepper-spray them:

Here is a sampling of messages offered by the anti-Wall Street protesters:

As should be expected, the corporate media has failed to cover the events on Wall Street this week in a meaningful way, instead choosing to portray the demonstrators as troublemakers and buffoons.

One New York television station, however, is asking for videos covering the arrest of nonviolent protesters and police brutality. If you have footage of the arrests and cops viciously pepper-spraying women, send an email here: desk@ny1news.com.
