About two dozen people have arrived in the state’s largest city to begin an “Occupy Newark” protest.
  

The protesters were greeted at Military Park Friday afternoon by the city’s police chief, Sheila Coley.
  

Coley welcomed the group to Newark by saying they had a right to protest non-violently and that police were there to ensure their safety.
  

The protesters spoke in a call-and-repeat form of communication, called “the people’s mic,” developed by Occupy Wall Street groups around the country who are prohibited from using bullhorns.
  

The Newark group chanted its appreciation to Coley for showing up.
  

Those participating ranged from long-time Newark activists to a group of friends from Flemington who say they were inspired by the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York City.
