This page is part of a larger feature called Occupy: 12 Events That Defined Year One. In the run-up to #S17, the one year anniversary of the movement, we will be posting stories from our archives for every month of the past year of occupy. For October 2011, we’re featuring two stories from the October 1st march over the Brooklyn Bridge that ended in 700 arrests and marked a day of escalation for the movement.
