Two people were arrested Tuesday afternoon during an Occupy Philadelphia protest that created traffic jams in Center City.
About 125 Occupy members marched through Center City in honor of May Day, a traditional date for celebrating workers’ rights.
Occupiers tried to shut down a Wells Fargo bank at 17th and Walnut Streets. When a customer tried to use the ATM there, a scuffle began, and police arrested two protesters. Occupy members said the customer started the fight.
Names of the people arrested were not immediately available.
Occupy participants targeted Wells Fargo as a protest against the housing crisis and large bank bailouts.
