LOS ANGELES — Hundreds of sympathizers of the Occupy Wall Street protest are marching in the downtown Los Angeles financial district. The demonstration Thursday morning has been peaceful but police have taken two protesters into custody. The group, chiefly a coalition of labor unions, gathered between the Bank of America tower and Wells Fargo Plaza, chanting “Banks got bailed out, we got sold out.” The protesters then marched several blocks and occupied a street, where about a dozen protesters have linked arms around several tents. Good Jobs LA, a coalition that includes labor organizations, community groups and others, is organizing the protest. Many are wearing purple Service Employees International Union jackets and T-shirts. See the article here: Downtown Defiance: Protestors March In The Streets
