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.

  1. they threw a revolution and nobody came

  2. Oh…they’ll be there.

    Corporations have reigned with impunity for too long now.

  3. I feel the critical mass necessary is gathering force all over the world to instrument change in economics and ethics first, then politics and leadership will follow, all geared toward a new and cleaner attitude toward the truth in all things, and a need to respect and listen to the needs of the people and advancing society with everyone involved!

  4. Yup, they’ll be there. The unions will bus them in.

  5. And I’ll be there.

    So will my wife, my niece, my nephew, their parents and many in my neighborhood.

    This is all about we, the working class folks of America, taking our country back from the corporatist pigs and multi-generational wealthy manipulators.

  6. I guess the point is: ‘All animals should be equal?’ Viva communismo! Viva Marx, Lenin and Mao! The real problem lies NOT with Wall Street, but in CONGRESS! Instead of protesting HERE, these minds of mush should wise up and occupy Capital Hill and the White House!
