Thousands of Occupy Wall Street protesters have now begun filing into Times Square for a massive Occupation Party, in part to celebrate the spreading of OWS across the globe today. The police have begun setting up barricades to keep the protesters within certain areas, and portions of the sidewalks have become almost impassable. However, the mood around midtown is joyous—you can watch a live stream from there below, and we'll be giving live updates for the next few hours. [More Updates Below]

According to James Thilman, our reporter at the scene, there are sporatic eruptions of extended cheering between chants: the usuals, such as "banks got bailed out, we got sold out.

However, it seems to be working thus far: police have just started letting traffic come through 7th Avenue.

Update 6:54 p.m.: According to @Jopauca, the older cop you can see in the picture below has pushed at least two protesters.

In addition, it was announced on the microphone that horse cops and riot police have lined up, and the NYPD are "asking everyone to exit east on 46th. Including those on the sidewalk." According to The Nation publisher Peter Rothberg, "WNBC reporting 10,000-20,000 in Times Sq ." (3 images)
