(Newser) – About 300 people observing the anniversary of Occupy Wall Street marched to tiny Zuccotti Park in New York's lower Manhattan, the birthplace and headquarters for the protest movement. Police patrolled the crowd yesterday and took at least a dozen people into custody near Trinity Church, which borders Zuccotti Park. Police confirmed that they made arrests, mostly for disorderly conduct, but they did not have a total number.

Protesters marched from Washington Square Park and headed south down Broadway to Zuccotti Park, chanting as they went. The group later thinned out. The march came on the first of three days of planned events. The official anniversary date is tomorrow.
