Economic protesters gather at Los Angeles City Hall

October 1, 2011 |  1:57 pm


Several hundred people marched on Los Angeles City Hall on Saturday to protest the nation's economic climate and encourage political involvement.

The event was organized by a group called Occupy LA, which models itself after the "leaderless resistance movement" Occupy Wall Street. The New York group has been holding a sit-in near Manhattan's financial district.  

The Los Angeles protesters met in Pershing Square Saturday morning before walking to City Hall, momentarily causing minor traffic delays along Broadway. The event has drawn honks from passing motorists and no arrests.
