Hundreds march in LA in economic protests

Oct 6, 2011

LOS ANGELES — A downtown Los Angeles march in sympathy with New York's Wall Street demonstration has spilled into an intersection and police have formed containment lines.

Some organizers of the Thursday afternoon march appear to be trying to get demonstrators back onto sidewalks.

One group also has entered the lobby of a bank.

About 500 union members, students, activists and others have been marching among downtown high-rises containing offices of banks and other financial businesses.

Demonstrators have also been camping out at Los Angeles City Hall for the past week and say they may continue to do so through the winter.
