As police arrested hundreds of protesters on the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City, more demonstrations began to spring up across the U.S.

In Los Angeles, protesters gathered in front of City Hall and danced on buses with “peace” emblazoned on the side.

A smaller protest was held in Chicago’s financial district where protesters held placards demanding “Jobs Not Cuts”.

Protesters also turned out in Denver, gathering downtown before marching into the city chanting, “Occupy the streets.”

All the protests were inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement which has seen hundreds of people camping out near the financial district in New York City and conducting marches calling for an end to home foreclosures and high unemployment.
