Occupy protesters mark second anniversary

Protesters call for tax on Wall Street financial transactions as movement struggles to maintain momentum.

    It has been two years since the Occupy Wall Street movement was born in the US - triggering spin-off protests across the world aimed at corruption and economic inequality.

    Protesters marked the second anniversary on Tuesday with a new objective: calling for a tax on Wall Street financial transactions, organisers said.

    Al Jazeera's Cath Turner reports from New York on how the movement is struggling to maintain momentum.
