2011: The New York Police Department clears Occupy Wall Street protesters from Zucotti Park, the privately owned public space they had occupied since Sept. 17, 2011, to stage their protest, due to its purportedly unsanitary and hazardous conditions. The police arrested some 200 people in the process. After several unsuccessful attempts to re-occupy the original location, protesters would instead turn their focus to occupying banks, corporate headquarters, board meetings, college and university campuses.
