Occupy Wall Street protesters will march in a mini-marathon of their own in Manhattan on Monday, when hundreds will trek from 181st Street in Washington Heights down to Zuccotti Park.

Protesters say the roughly 11-mile march down St. Nicholas Avenue and Broadway is intended to connect all of the city's communities to the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Led by community leaders, elected officials and grassroots organizers, the marchers will make several stops on the way end with a solidarity demonstration at Zuccotti Park, where protesters have been camped since mid-September.

On Saturday, Occupy Wall Street protestors marched through Federal Court in Foley Square in Lower Manhattan, to call on Washington to stop helping out big banks.

Twenty protestors were arrested on charges including disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

At least one person was charged with assaulting a police officer.

Earlier in the day, some demonstrators went on a separate march to mark "Bank Transfer Day," a nationwide movement that urges bank customers to move their deposits to credit unions.
