Two years after getting its start in a downtown Manhattan park, Occupy Wall Street, the populist movement protesting economic inequality, marked its second anniversary on Tuesday with a protest near the New York Stock Exchange and a planned march near the United Nations.

The group, which inspired dozens of spin-offs around the world with its "we are the 99 percent" slogan but drew criticism for its unclear goals, has focused Tuesday's events on a new objective: calling for a small tax on Wall Street financial transactions, organizers said.
