Spartanburg protests an offshoot of Occupy Wall Street movement 10-14-11
SPARTANBURG -- About 30 people are rallying in downtown Spartanburg as an offshoot to the four weeks of protests of banks and financial institutions in New York City.
The Occupy Spartanburg protest started Thursday morning and is expected to last until Friday morning.
The protesters gathered in Morgan Square, marching through occasional rain with signs that read "Greed is not a moral value" and "Get Wall St. out of government."
It's the first protest of its kind in South Carolina, but people in Columbia, Greenville and Florence are trying to organize similar protests.
The Occupy Wall Street protests in New York have been going on for four weeks, with the movement slowly spreading across the country.http://www.aikenstandard.com/State/m1086-BC-SC-OccupySpartanburg-10-13-0401
