Several hundred in 'Occupy San Diego' movement march downtown

October 7, 2011 |  6:33 pm

Several hundred demonstrators under the banner "Occupy San Diego" took to downtown streets late Friday afternoon in support of their message that Wall Street is ripping off America.

San Diego police stopped traffic and blocked off streets so demonstrators could march from a gathering spot in the Gaslamp District to a plaza behind City Hall.

In its first few hours, the protest was exuberant but peaceful and no attempt was made to occupy any building. Demonstration organizers said marchers plan to remain all weekend in one or more city parks.
