Protests against Wall Street spread across US
Monday, October 3, 2011
NEW YORK (AP) -- Protests against Wall Street are entering their 18th day Tuesday as demonstrators across the country show their anger over the wobbly economy and what they see as corporate greed.
They're marching on Federal Reserve banks and camping out in parks from Los Angeles to Portland, Maine.
Demonstrations are expected to continue throughout the week as more groups hold organizational meetings and air their concerns on websites and through streaming video.
In Manhattan on Monday, hundreds of protesters dressed as corporate zombies in white face paint lurched past the New York Stock Exchange clutching fistfuls of fake money. In Chicago, demonstrators pounded drums in the city's financial district. Others pitched tents or waved protest signs at passing cars in Boston, St. Louis, Kansas City, Mo., and Los Angeles.
