Occupy rally shuts down shipping port indefinitely

Members of the New York City chapter of Iraq Veterans Against the War and dozens of other uniformed veterans known as "Veterans of the 99%" pause in front of the New York Stock Exchange while marching from Vietnam Veterans Plaza to Zucotti Park on Wednesday in New York City. The veterans groups, which feature current and former members of the United States military, marched in support of Occupy Wall Street and to pay homage to Scott Olsen, a former Marine and Iraq war vet who sustained a skull fracture after he was injured by police at an Occupy Oakland protest.
