Monday marks one year of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

It was last September 17 that hundreds of people rallied in Zuccotti park, that's in New York city's Financial District, to protest big banks and economic inequality.

The rally sparked a worldwide movement with supporters around the world.

Protesters made their way through the streets of lower Manhattan on Saturday, where police say several people were arrested.

More demonstrations in New York and around the country are planned for Monday.

So far, no local movements have been planned, that's according to occupymedfordoregon.org.
