NEW YORK, Nov. 17 (Xinhua) -- Hundreds of protesters took to the streets in New York's financial district Thursday, swarming sidewalks near the New York Stock Exchange amid scuffles with police, on the Occupy Wall Street movement's two-month anniversary.

The protest began after 7 a.m. eastern time as the crowd gathered around Zuccotti Park and marched to Wall Street, chanting slogans like "Shut down Wall Street," "We are the 99%."

New York Police beefed up security with a heavy presence in the neighborhood, using motorcycles and metal barricades to block the protesters' progress. NYSE workers were asked to show identifications to enter the area. Nevertheless, trading at the NYSE opened as usual at 9:30 a.m.

People around the world are standing together to raise their voice against the oppression of the 1% and their corporate welfare and lobbying which are eroding our economy and country from the inside out.
