Occupy Wall Street is back.
A year after a band of protesters launched a movement that would convulse the nation, demonstrators are again rallying in lower Manhattan to cries of "Whose Street? Our Street!" And while their causes are many, they are unified by a sense that the United States has become unacceptably divided, economically unjust and corrupted by the universal influence of corporate money.
For those of you unable to make it to the demonstration, here's a sampling of images from the revived Occupy protests.
