9:01 a.m. ET - ABC News’ Aaron Katersky: The demonstrators have been trying to approach the NYSE from every possible direction, blocked at each by a wall of NYPD. While arrests happen there is a marching band like something out of mardi gras, protesters dressed as trees and in other costumes…all mingling with business suited men and bewildered children trying to get to school. With the music, chants, cops, costumes the scene is somewhat absurd.
8:53 a.m. ET - ABC News’ TJ Winick: Chants of “Shame” and “The whole world is watching” as arrests are being made.
8:48 a.m. ET - ABC News’ Dan Harris: At corner of Nassau and Pine. Several hundred protesters have shut down intersection a block or so from NYSE. Police just warned people to get out of the street. Arrests appear imminent.
