US activists take on Wall Street

Eighty demonstrators arrested since they began protest against what they call corporate greed and social inequality.

    Hundreds of demonstrators have been occupying a park in New York's financial district for nearly two weeks in protest against what they call corporate greed and social inequality.

    Police have arrested about 80 people and used pepper spray on the non-violent activists as they marched on Wall Street.
