As a police helicopter hovered overhead, several hundred Occupy Wall Street protesters marched across the Brooklyn Bridge on Sunday to mark the six-month anniversary of an Oct. 1, 2011, march on the span that saw more than 700 O.W.S. demonstrators arrested. Last Sunday, after the demonstrators marched from Zuccotti Park, police guided them onto the bridge’s walkway as a police official using a bullhorn warned that anyone proceeding onto the roadway would be arrested. Several hours after starting, the march ended in Brooklyn’s Cadman Plaza where the crowd gathered for one of the movement’s General Assemblies. The G.A.’s keynote was given by a group of medical professionals calling for “Healthcare for the 99 percent.” There were no arrests.
