    An Occupy Wall Street protestor is arrested on the steps of the New York Supreme Court, Saturday, Nov. 5, 2011, in New York.

    Police say about 20 people were arrested during another demonstration by Occupy Wall Street protesters in New York City.

    The arrests were made as dozens of people marched from the encampment in lower Manhattan to Foley Square near the courts and police headquarters. The charges included disorderly conduct.

    Demonstrators also spent part of Saturday closing bank accounts and opening credit union accounts. Representatives from city credit unions were at Zuccotti Park to help people open accounts. Credit union officials say their business is booming.

    The head of the Lower East Side People's Federal Credit Union says she is at the park providing people with information on how to move money to a credit union.

    Linda Levy says they are also telling people about the benefits of credit unions.
