A Weakened Occupy Wall Street Celebrates 1 Year

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Occupy Wall Street is in disarray a year after the protests against corporate greed and inequality began in lower Manhattan.
    
On Monday, protesters will converge near the New York Stock Exchange to celebrate Occupy's anniversary, marking the day they began camping out in Zuccotti Park. Marches and rallies are planned in more than 30 cities.
    
About 300 people observing the anniversary marched together Saturday. Police say at least a dozen were arrested.
    
The movement has lost its ability to organize since New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg evicted the protesters from the plaza last year.
    
The movement grew too large too quickly for the organization to keep up. Without leaders or specific demands, what started as a protest against income inequality turned into an amorphous protest against everything wrong with the world.
