NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – It was another busy day for Occupy Wall Street protesters who held three marches throughout the city on Tuesday. Demonstrators started their day around 1:30 p.m. at Sotheby’s, joining a rally with union workers involved in a contract dispute with the auction house.
They moved to the Manhattan district attorney’s office Tuesday evening around 5 p.m. to call for an investigation into what they say was an “unprovoked assault” by a police officer last week. The group says activist Felix Rivera-Pitre was seen on a video being punched by an officer when protesters hit the streets after winning the right to stay in Zuccotti Park on Friday.
