An Occupy Wall Street protester is arrested by police during a rally to mark the one-year anniversary of the movement in New York, September 17, 2012.

Monday marked the first anniversary of "Occupy Wall Street," a movement that began with an encampment in New York City's Zuccotti Park and inspired similar protests across America and around the world. "Occupy" protesters staged large demonstrations in New York and San Francisco to celebrate the anniversary -- but the milestone has left some people questioning the validity and success of the controversial movement.
