Occupy San Diego protesters vow to remain camped out at City Hall
The protest is part of the nationwide uprising of anger aimed at a variety of economic and social issues, including high unemployment, greed, corruption and political paralysis.
There have been no arrests in San Diego, and police have been quick to say that the protesters are acting within their 1st Amendment rights. The march began Friday afternoon and, according to organizers, included more than 1,000 persons.
On the group's website, one organizer, Toby Benjamin, expressed satisfaction: "Congratulations, everyone! Our hard work has finally come to fruition –- the Occupation is here."
One sign at the plaza read: "Where's My Bailout?"
Another: "If San Diego Is Protesting, Something Big Is Happening."
