An ongoing anti-Wall Street protest is seemingly growing in strength following a huge demonstration in New York City this weekend.

Thousands of activists in the "Occupy Wall Street" movement rallied on the Brooklyn Bridge Saturday, leading to more than 700 arrests for blocking traffic.

Protests continued yesterday as they entered their third week with people speaking out against corporate greed and other economic problems.

The Occupy Wall Street movement isn't limited to protests in New York. Similar demonstrations have taken place in Chicago, Los Angeles and Washington.
Organizers have been using social media sites to get their message out.
