Large Turnout for Occupy Milwaukee

10/17/11 – Several hundred protesters filled the streets of downtown Milwaukee Saturday, carrying signs and shouting slogans against corporate greed, while demanding U.S. banks face stronger regulation. Occupy Milwaukee was inspired by the Occupy Wall Street protests that started in New York City. Marchers were chanting, “We are 99 percent,” referring to the world’s richest one percent who control billions of dollars in assets while many in the rest of the world struggle with finances. Police looking on, but there were no showdowns reported in Wisconsin’s largest city.
