占领华尔街抗议者与警察对峙 Wall Street Protesters in Standoff With Police

17 November, 2011

纽约市的抗议活动愈演愈烈。数百名的不满美国金融资本主义的示威者在华尔街附近与警察发生对峙。一些警方设置的路障被抗议者拆除。抗议者在纽约市集会,以大规模抗议活动纪念已进行了两个月的占领华尔街运动,誓言要瘫痪纽约金融区。随着局势升级,人们能看到,数名抗议者被捕。

两天前,纽约市政府将抗议者从曼哈顿下城的祖科蒂公园驱逐出去。这些抗议者自从9月以来就在祖科蒂公园露营。他们目前被允许返回这个公共场所,但被禁止露营。抗议者说,他们计划将星期四的示威活动扩展到纽约的地铁和主要桥梁路段。纽约市副市长霍华德.沃尔夫森星期三对记者说,正在准备应对“数万”名集会者。 

Protests in New York City are intensifying as hundreds of anti-capitalist demonstrators push back against police and dismantle barriers around Wall Street. The Occupy Wall Street protesters have promised a major show of strength Thursday on the two-month anniversary of their movement. Demonstrators have vowed to shut down the city's financial district with a rally at the New York Stock Exchange. As the situation escalated, several protesters could be seen being arrested. 

The latest development comes two days after the city evicted protesters from Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan, where they had been camping since September. They were allowed to return to the public space, but were prohibited from camping. The protesters say they plan to take Thursday's demonstration to the city's subways and major bridges. New York Deputy Mayor Howard Wolfson told reporters Wednesday the city was preparing for a crowd of "tens of thousands."
