WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:


Some activists are posting online messages that at least two Occupy Tampa participants have been arrested today in New York during the one year anniversary of Occupy Wall Street. The two are Kelsy O’Morrow and Billy Livsey.

Earlier Monday afternoon I spoke with another occupy participant from the Tampa Bay area, Christopher Kuleci from Gulfport. He’s in Manhattan today airing live video footage of the Occupy Wall Street anniversary actions .

Police say more than 100 people have been arrested as Occupy Wall Street protesters are marching in small groups around Manhattan's financial district to mark the anniversary of the grass-roots movement.

Police also removed four protesters in wheelchairs after they blocked a busy street today.
