Hundreds March/Protest In San Francisco

Hundreds of people marched through downtown San Francisco on Wednesday, joining a growing movement whose followers believe the nation's financial system is broken and its distribution of wealth unfair.

The demonstrators, who at one point peaked at about 800 strong, held a peaceful march through the Financial District that included chants, "The banks got bailed out, we got sold out," and "We are the 99 percent," in reference to their argument that only 1 percent of the U.S. population controls the wealth.





The camp outside the Federal Reserve Bank has become what the protesters proudly call a "city within a city." Despite the rain that soaked the camp this week, more protesters join the camp each day. A makeshift bookstore sat on display facing toward the sidewalk.

A woman pushing a baby in a stroller stopped to hand Michael Clift, an artist from San Diego who is a camp regular, a mat and a tent before the march. "This camp is growing exponentially, this movement is growing exponentially," Clift said. "The time will come when the 99 percent of the population realizes that they can actually do something about the 1 percent that controls it all."


Glad to see my city getting involved. Also very happy they are protesting the Fed as well. That is something we need more of. The movement is growing. It's been active in SF, and is gaining momentum. I hope many more cities continue to join the cause.

Too bad nobody knows who the one percent are and they can not call a single individual out by name.

I find it quite interesting too, no not really.

Looks like Oakland is following in your footsteps.

Remember how this all started?

i have a home in SF area but rented it out starting earlier this year because of:

- rising crowding

-rising crime and animosity

-rising rude loud nasty ghetto people crashing better hoods

so i'm wondering, is the hood getting better or WORSE with all this Occupy ruckus.

i saw the pics and footage of the "Occupy Oakland" camp society they created and it just because a breeding ground for drugs, filth (human bodily wastes) and anything goes kind of rastafarian anarchyyy

i dread what it will be like when i go back..

Maybe Oakland shouldn't have shut off their water access. Water's kind of essential for sanitation, you know?

I suppose you support efforts by the city to create the conditions you're whining about. Gives you a sense of validity?
