At Least 15 Protesters Arrested Outside Goldman Sachs


The New York Daily News reports:

"At least 15 Occupy Wall Street protesters were arrested Thursday after marching on Goldman Sachs to deliver an “indictment” of the financial giant.

"Among the demonstrators hauled away after sitting down in front of the multinational’s doors at 200 West St. was former New York Times foreign correspondent-turned-activist Chris Hedges."

Rev. Billy, who was also among those arrested, tweeted this yesterday:
