Signs of the Wall Street Protest-
Wall Street protesters won a small victory on Friday, when officials opted to delay cleaning up Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan, where protesters have been camping out for more than a month.

"Late last night, we received notice from the owners of Zuccotti Park-Brookfield Properties - that they are postponing their scheduled cleaning of the park, and for the time being withdrawing their request from earlier in the week for police assistance during their cleaning operation," Deputy Mayor Cas Holloway said in a statement. "Our position has been consistent throughout: the City's role is to protect public health and safety, to enforce the law, and guarantee the rights of all New Yorkers. Brookfield believes they can work out an arrangement with the protesters that will ensure the park remains clean, safe, available for public use and that the situation is respectful of residents and businesses downtown, and we will continue to monitor the situation."

As the Occupy Wall Street movement spreads to other major cities, the protesters messages have become more clear: The system is broken. Here's a look at some of the most striking protest posters we've seen so far. less
