The anti-corporatism campaign, which began in New York's financial district under the name Occupy Wall Street, has now spread to more than 1,400 cities across the globe.
The website of Occupy Together, an umbrella group for the national movement, reported that there were 'Occupy' events currently running or planned for October in 1496 cities across the world.
Local police forces, in several of the US cities, which have been the scene of protests, have both attacked and arrested the anti-Wall Street protesters.
The latest violence took place in Dallas, Atlanta, Seattle and Boston on Tuesday, when the police began removing demonstrators from the protest sites with the use of force.
Some 130 peaceful protesters were arrested in Boston.
