    Occupy Wall Street - Day 1

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     shameel shares these photos taken on September 17, the first day of the #OccupyWallStreet protests in New York City. He says: 'The first day was fun -- the movement had just begun, and media presence was relatively light. I know a number of the people involved, as I have met them at other protests (e.g. Bloombergville) The demands had not yet been formulated. There was very little organization, but spirits were high. 7 days later, more than 80 people would get arrested, and the real political edge kicked in.'
    - elchueco, CNN iReport producer

    On September 17, hundreds gathered in lower Manhattan to protest corporate bailouts and tax cuts. It marked the beginning of a movement known as Occupy Wall Street.
