Oct. 15 marked a "Global Day of Action" called by the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement. Organisers say protests took place in 15,000 cities worldwide. From Tel Aviv to Berlin, from Rome to Hong Kong, thousands of demonstrators demanded social justice and criticized banks and capitalism.
In New York City, where OWS has occupied Zucotti Park for a month now, tens of thousands participated in diverse marches that converged for a final rally at Times Square. IPS correspondent Christian Papesch caught the ambience as the occupation took over one of New York City's most famous tourist attractions: Times Square.
