After the arrest of 700 protesters for blocking traffic on Brooklyn Bridge during a protest march by the supporters of Occupy Wall Street movement, the police reopened the bridge Saturday evening.
The bridge was re-opened to traffic at 8:05 pm, a police spokesman said.
The police on Saturday evening arrest the protesters, when a large group of them broke off from others on the bridge's walkway and headed across the Brooklyn-bound lanes.
Over 700 summonses and desk appearance tickets have been issued in connection with a demonstration on the Brooklyn Bridge late this afternoon after multiple warnings by police were given to protesters to stay on the pedestrian walkway and that if they took roadway they would be arrested, a police spokesman said.
Global Revolution has put a link on its Web site where people can watch the live streaming of the protest, and can follow the live streaming chat and the twitter activities.
