Protesters march on Wall Street, New York

Thousands of protesters have marched on New York's financial district, with rallies also held in other US cities.

Powerful unions gave a high-profile boost to the long-running demonstrations, as their members joined the rally in lower Manhattan.

Activists are concerned about high unemployment and social inequality.
