Protesters mass outside NYPD

New York - About 2 000 anti-corporate demonstrators marched on Friday from a protest camp they have occupied near Wall Street to the headquarters of the New York police department.
The noisy but peaceful rally was the largest since anti-Wall Street activists occupied a small park in lower Manhattan two weeks ago to protest corporate bailouts and corporate influence in politics.
"We got sold out!" the crowd chanted as it snaked through rush hour traffic, closely shadowed by columns of police.
Hand-drawn placards included: "Nazi bankers" and "People before dollars."
It was the first time the protesters tried marching on New York's high-tech police headquarters at One Police Plaza, the nerve centre of one of the world's most sophisticated security services.
Numbers were swelled on Friday by support from local unions and by youths responding to false rumours on the internet that mega band Radiohead was going to play a free concert at the protest camp.
Protesters added police brutality to their lengthy and still vaguely defined list of grievances after an incident a week ago when a senior officer used pepper spray against four demonstrators who had already been shut inside a police pen.
"NYPD protects billionaires and Wall Street," one placard said...
