A protest movement is growing in the United States, decrying corporate greed, social inequality and the poor state of the economy.

What began in New York City more than two weeks ago and labeled “Occupy Wall Street” has spawned similar demonstrations in several major U.S cities, including Boston, Chicago and Los Angeles and across the Midwest.

On Saturday, more than 700 demonstrators were arrested when they blocked traffic for several hours on the Brooklyn Bridge in New YorkCity. The arrests have galvanized the protest movement, which is said to be growing strength daily.
