  1. Authorities Arrest 100 Wall Street Protesters

    Who would arrest a man in a polar bear suit? New York City authorities weren’t disarmed by the costume or the man’s chanting colleagues, 100 of whom were arrested yesterday for blocking streets in NYC’s financial hub. Hundreds, many dressed in blue to resemble a wave of water, stopped traffic near the New York Stock Exchange in a bid to highlight corporate America’s contribution to global warming. It followed Sunday’s 300,000-strong march and came just before today’s climate summit.
