Organizers say around 2,000 are expected at a planned “Occupy Phoenix” protest this weekend.
KSAZ-TV reports that protesters are organizing a rally at Cesar Chavez Park on Saturday afternoon and more than 2,000 people on Facebook have committed to join.
Organizer Joshua Fox told KSAZ-TV that the protesters are following the examples of similar protests in Los Angeles, Atlanta and New York.
The demonstration is part of a number of protests against Wall Street as demonstrators across the country show their anger over the wobbly economy and what they see as corporate greed. The Occupy Wall Street protests started on Sept. 17 in front of the New York Stock Exchange.
