Demonstrations on both sides of the U.S. -- in what Occupy protesters are calling a "day of action."
In New York, police arrested more than a 100 protesters... attempting to disrupt business at the New York Stock Exchange.
But thanks to a heavy police presence and a lower than expected attendance, demonstrators were unable to disrupt any business.
Several scuffles broke out.
SOUNDBITE: Protester
"They can arrest people but they can't arrest an idea. And so it's important for us to get the education aspect of it in as well."
In Los Angeles - at least 20 people were arrested after demonstrators marched through the city's financial area.
SOUNDBITE: Protester
''I'm here to support the movement and the people marching on Wall Street in New York today."
In Washington, D.C., more than 100 people marched from their camp downtown - to Key Bridge in Georgetown.
And - in Portland, police closed a main bridge before protesters crossed it.
Later hundreds gathered in the West Coast city ... in a standoff with riot police ... part of a now two-month-old movement against economic inequality.
