Occupy Wall Street protesters hit the streets of Manhattan again on Sunday as they prepared to mark the movement's anniversary on Monday.
Demonstrators marched from Gansevoort Street to Foley Square, where a concert was held Sunday, featuring Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello.
"I thought life was hard and it sucks and then saw on Facebook that things were going on in New York," said one protester.
Protestors are planning to carry out mass civil disobedience in the Financial District on Monday morning.
Demonstrators returned Saturday night to Zuccotti Park, where Occupy Wall Street launched last year.
"I truly believe in this cause. I was here last year. I'm an original Occupier," said one protester.
Those gathered Sunday were met by a heavy police presence, as dozens of officers surrounded the park.
Police say they started bolstering security Saturday morning and the patrols will keep going through Monday.
NYPD officials say 40 arrests were made between Saturday and Sunday afternoon, for charges ranging from disorderly conduct to assault.
A small group of demonstrators filled Washington Square Park earlier in the day for rallies and workshops.
