About a dozen Occupy Wall Street protesters have been arrested during a march near the New York Stock Exchange on the anniversary of the grass-roots movement.

A couple hundred protesters participated in the march Monday morning. Protesters who sat on the sidewalk were arrested.

Earlier, they gathered across the street from Zuccotti Park, the site of the movement's birth.

But there was no sign of a planned "people's wall" on the streets surrounding the stock exchange.

Instead, protesters held a small meeting where they talked about the ills of Wall Street and corporate greed.

Dozens of police officers and vans lined the streets.

On Saturday, at least a dozen protesters were arrested as some 300 people observed the anniversary.

Marches and rallies are planned in more than 30 cities worldwide.
