NEW YORK CITY-Voicing their discontent over the economy, jobs and corporate America, hundreds of protesters flooded the streets of the Financial District calling for economic and financial reforms during the Monday morning rush. The group, known as Occupy Wall Street, gathered near the New York Stock Exchange, The Trump Building and other major financial institutions banging drums, blowing horns and chanting “Wall Street is Our Street” in unison, aiming their dissatisfaction with the US economy directly at the big banks. GlobeSt.com was on-the-ground here:

Today is the third day of the protests, which has attracted youths and many people from all walks of life affected by the economic downturn. The movement–modeled after the Tahrir Square protests in Downtown Cario–was organized via social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr, according to the Occupy Wall Street website.

In response, the New York City Police Department have placed barricades along Wall Street, though sources told the Wall Street Journal that the protests have remained peaceful. At this time, hundreds are still camped out in Zuccotti Park, across the street from GlobeSt.com’s headquarters at 120 Broadway.
