About 180 Occupy protestors were arrested on disorderly conduct charges in Lower Manhattan as demonstrators marked the movement's one year anniversary yesterday. Organizers claimed their numbers to be in the thousands, but press reports estimated it in the hundreds. Another 43 occupiers were arrested over the weekend. Councilman Jumaane Williams was shoved by an officer with a baton but was uninjured.
