Cops break up Occupy the Bronx rally

Police arrested five people at the Occupy the Bronx general assembly in Mott Haven Saturday, preempting the organization’s plans to hold a rally and “festival” in a community garden fenced-off by the city in mid-November. It was the first time police had moved on the borough’s arm of Occupy Wall Street since it began holding weekly meeings in October.
