More than three weeks after starting, Occupy Chicago—a branch of the anti-corporate protest that initiated on New York City's Wall Street—is still taking place.

Approximately 175 people connected with the movement were arrested Oct. 15 for staying in Grant Park past the site's closing time. The next day, people gathered at LaSalle Street and Jackson Boulevard to march back to the park, the Chicago Tribune reported.
