A group of students forced their way into the Milan offices of Goldman Sachs earlier today as part of a protest in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street.

According to Reuters:

Students managed to break into the hall of the Goldman Sachs building in the heart of Milan's financial district, a few steps away from La Scala opera house, police said.

The protests were quickly dispersed by police and security was restored to the elegant building, though red graffiti was daubed on its walls expressing anger at Italy's Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and proclaiming "Give us money."

The news comes fresh on the heels of reports that protesters in cities across Europe plan to launch their own versions of the Occupy Wall Street movement on Saturday.
