Protesters March Against Wall Street, Budget Cuts In Lower Manhattan
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) Protesters took to the streets of Lower Manhattan Thursday afternoon to denounce deep city budget cuts and demand higher taxes for Wall Street companies.

There were nine separate gatherings all of which sought to blow the whistle on what they said were tax breaks for the wealthy.

People are suffering, the middle-class is suffering while the billionaires are just becoming richer and richer, a teacher named Nancy told 1010 WINS Al Jones.
