Occupy Wall Street protester takes on the South Bronx, NY Daily News

Single Occupy Wall Street became Occupy 161st St. Tuesday, with protester from the downtown movement canvassing a welfare line in the South Bronx, the New York Daily News reports.

Protesters came from Zuccotti Park to the Melrose Job Center to protest New York’s welfare system and rally support for the cause.

Every weekday morning, hundreds of single mothers and out-of-work fathers queue up outside the Melrose welfare center, forming a despondent line that stretches three full blocks, from Morris Ave. to the Grand Concourse.
