Two days after the New York Police Department tore down the Occupy Wall Street encampment in Zuccotti Park, protesters marked the two-month anniversary of their movement, which has spread from New York to dozens of other cities across the country and around the world.

On Thursday, Nov. 17, hundreds of protesters took to the streets around the New York Stock Exchange in Lower Manhattan. Their goal was to block off the stock exchange and prevent traders from getting to the floor, but police barricades prevented that, although the crowd of protesters and police did make it difficult for some traders to reach the stock exchange.

Later on Thursday, the protesters plan to gather at 16 subway hubs around the city to spread their message.
