www.DemocracyNow.org - In New York City, hundreds of activists remain camped out in the Financial District for a fourth day as part of an action called "Occupy Wall Street." Police made six arrests on Monday mostly during an impromptu march on Wall Street. Jason Amadi was one of the protesters arrested. "I was chalking on the sidewalk when I was surrounded by officers, they told me to put my hands behind my back and they handcuffed me and took me to the police station," Amadi says. "I was really upset by this, but really what it did was empower me to be here because this is more than our government being taken by the banks and exploiting all of us this is about our First Amendment rights, our right to assemble and really just taking back our government for the people."
