Wall St. protest gets boost from Michael Moore

Protesters who have been camping out in lower Manhattan have gotten an unexpected morale boost from filmmaker Michael Moore.

The "Occupy Wall Street" protest is in its second week, as demonstrators speak out against corporate greed and social inequality.

Moore visited Zuccotti Park on Monday evening to cheer the protesters on after they marched through lower Manhattan.

Police made 87 arrests on Saturday during a march north to Union Square. Protesters criticized the police response as heavy-handed and said officers used pepper spray on people who did nothing wrong. Police dispute those claims.

The march Monday remained calm and police said there were no arrests.
