Occupy Wall Street
A group of anti-corruption activists say they will be "occupying" Los Angeles on Saturday.

The planned encampment, to be set up at L.A. City Hall, will protest the corruption of an economic and political system that has allowed a small fraction of Americans to grow rich "while the rest of us have gotten poorer," the group Occupy Los Angeles said in a statement to the media Wednesday.

A few dozen protesters have been camping at a park near Wall Street since Sept. 17 and staging occasional marches.

The group said it is not aligned with any political party or candidate.
