Demonstrators to Mirror Occupy Wall Street Protest in Louisville

A branch of the weeks-long Occupy Wall Street protest is coming to Kentucky.The protest began in New York City on September 17th. Demonstrators have marched on the financial district and across lower Manhattan. Over the weekend, 700 protesters were arrested for blocking traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge.The Canadian anti-capitalist group Adbusters first called for the nonviolent demonstration as a way to end the influence of money in politics.Similar protests have sprung up in other cities, and tomorrow, local activists will gather at 4th and Jefferson streets in Louisville.The Facebook page advertising the event lists several attendees and says the protest will last "as many days as it takes."
