Occupy Wall Street, A protest that paralyzed the Port of Oakland to show the extent of enlargement Wall Street Occupy movement ended in violence when riot police detained dozens of protesters during the night they broke into an empty building, smashed the windows of the center, graffiti flames painted all along the way.
