More than 100 people have been arrested as Occupy Wall Street protesters take part in what’s being called a “Day of Action” today, featuring rallies and marches throughout the city to mark two months since the start of the movement.

Several hundred protesters made their way from Zuccotti Park to the New York Stock Exchange before the 9:30 a.m. opening bell.

Barricades were set up by the New York City Police Department to control the crowds, and only people with stock exchange ID’s were being let past a certain point.
