“Occupy” Protest Follows Annual Rose Parade

Flickr user designsofdestiny

Hundreds of anti-Wall Street protesters have rallied near Pasadena’s City Hall after holding a demonstration on the heels of the annual Rose Parade.

Marchers carrying a giant banner and a homemade octopus to symbolize corporate greed followed part of the parade route Monday as the 123rd Tournament of Roses ended.

The demonstration has been peaceful, and no arrests have been made.

Organizers of Occupy the Rose Parade estimate the number of protesters at around 5,000 but police say it’s around 400.

Authorities say the other people in the street were parade spectators leaving their sidewalk viewing spots.
