    Chaos on Wall Street.


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter Brandon Ferraro submitted this dramatic video of occupy wall street protestors clashing with police in lower Manhattan in New York City. He thought it was important to document the scene so that "people can see what's going here."

    During a peaceful march after the early morning raid on Zuccotti Park (Liberty Park) protestors marched all throughout lower Manhattan. At one point, after being kicked out of Foley Square, the march continued down on Broadway and around 4 in the morning chaos breaks out and police officers and protestors get into a physical altercation. The protestors tried to remain as peaceful as possible even when they were being beaten and thrown up against walls and thrown onto the ground even for just being around the scene. The police were clearly using unnecessary violent force against the protestors in this video and all through out the early morning hours as the march went around lower Manhattan and eventually most meeting back up at Foley Square around 6 in the morning.
