CODEPINK co-director and protester Rae Abileah was arrested on Sunday as she attempted to throw a pink bra at a Bank of America in New York City.

Abileah was protesting Bank of America for allegedly helping to finance the Spectra Pipeline, which will bring gas [from 'fracking'] from New Jersey to New York City, reports RawStory.com.

Police officers rushed through the crowd and arrested Abileah for blocking a sidewalk.

More arrests are expected on Monday, when Occupy Wall Street plans to blockade the New York Stock Exchange to mark its first anniversary.
