Occupy Wall Street protesters gather in Union Square as the movement joins with activist groups for May Day demonstrations on May 1, 2012 in New York.
In the United States, the 99-percenters are set to hold a rally against the mayor of New York City; Michael Bloomberg’s running for the third term in office.
The protesters said the demonstration will be held on August 8 to challenge Bloomberg’s efforts to secure the post.
The US protesters said that Bloomberg has created a police state, where the 99-percenters are terrorized with stop and frisk.
The Occupy Wall Street movement has been protesting against income inequality and wealth distribution in the United States.
A large number of people have been injured or arrested in the New York police crackdown on peaceful protesters.
A new report says police officers of the New York Police Department violated the rights of Occupy Wall Street protesters by using excessive force and unjustified arrests.
The report that was released in July by the Global Justice Clinic at New York University's School of Law and the Walter Leitner International Human Rights Clinic at Fordham Law School also urged the creation of an independent inspector general to monitor the New York Police Department.
The Occupy Wall Street movement began when a group of demonstrators gathered in New York's financial district on September 17, 2011 to protest against corruption, the unjust distribution of wealth in the country, and the excessive influence of big corporations on US policies.
Having targeted the US financial policies, the 99-percenters have been using the slogan "We are the 99 percent" to distinguish themselves from the one percent of Americans who are in possession of the greatest portion of the nation's wealth.
