Democracy Now: OWS Protesters Return to Zuccotti to Honor Woody Guthrie; Clash With Police


At least one protester was injured in clashes with police at New York City’s Zuccotti Park Wednesday during a rally celebrating the 100th birthday of the late, legendary singer-songwriter, Woody Guthrie. Hundreds of Occupy Wall Street protesters gathered at the park Wednesday afternoon and police reportedly began shoving people onto the sidewalk. The protesters had marched for six days from the Liberty Bell in Pennsylvania. During the rally, protesters sang Guthrie’s legendary folk ballad, “This Land Is Your Land.”
