NEW YORK (AP) ' Police by the dozens have swept through a downtown Manhattan park, moving out Occupy Wall Street demonstrators who were celebrating their six-month anniversary.

New York police announced Zuccotti Park closed for the evening before moving through the excited and sometimes agitated protesters, who chanted and beat drums as they went.

A spokesperson for Occupy Wall Street estimated dozens of protesters were arrested.

The Occupy protest movement began at the park last fall and spread throughout the country against economic disparities.
