                NEW YORK - The Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement, which has been center stage in many of the world media’s stories over the past year, got a jolt yesterday from the organizers of the annual West Indian Day Parade in Brooklyn.

                About two dozen OWS members, carrying a large bright yellow banner, became the object of disdain from the parade officials shortly after our photographer took this picture.

                It seems OWS  wasn’t invited to participate in the parade and their banner was quickly confiscated.

                Only after hasty discussions were the OWS people able to march in the parade, without their banner, thanks to friendly members of the transport workers union who permitted them to join their ranks.
