NEW YORK (AP/CBSNewYork) – Occupy Wall Street protesters are on the move again around Manhattan.

Two protesters were arrested on Wednesday. One of them, a woman in clown makeup, was skipping as police led her away in handcuffs.

After a morning of marching, the demonstrators attended “teach-ins” at Bryant Park. Then they headed toward a nearby Bank of America tower but were repelled by police in riot gear.

The crowd ebbed and flowed throughout the rainy day. It reached about 200 at one point.

From time to time, the protesters stopped outside bank branches and yelled.

There was a heavy police presence around the 42nd Street area as the demonstration began Wednesday morning outside the Pfizer offices.

The events were punctuated by drumming, chanting and sometimes obscenities.
