Thousands of union workers joined protesters marching through the Financial District Wednesday for Occupy Wall Street’s largest rally yet against “corporate greed.”

The march was mostly peaceful – until after nightfall, when scuffles erupted and some of the younger demonstrators were arrested when they tried to storm barricades blocking them from Wall Street and the Stock Exchange.

Witnesses said about 200 people tried to push through barricades and police responded with pepper spray and penned them in with orange netting.
