Organizers say the protest will be held in front of the Bank of America at 333 Hope St. at 7 a.m.

Protesters plan to carry banners and set up tents in downtown intersections to cause what organizers say could be significant traffic delays downtown.

In a statement, a group called GoodJobs LA said the action was to call on Congress “to hold Wall Street accountable for fixing our economy and to make wealthy corporations and the rich pay their fair share, so our communities can have jobs, not budget cuts.”
