Local Occupy demonstrations still going strong
MIAMI (WSVN) -- The Occupy Wall Street movement in South Florida is gaining momentum and shows no signs of slowing.
In the second week of South Florida Occupy protests, hundreds of demonstrators took the streets on Saturday in downtown Fort Lauderdale to show support for the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Protesters voiced their concerns over what they call an injustice from bank bailouts and corporate greed.
Meanwhile, hundreds of environmental activists and Occupy Miami supporters rallied outside of the Society of Environmental Journalists' Conference at the Intercontinental Hotel in Downtown Miami.
The demonstrators are calling for the creation of more green energy jobs, protection for endangered animals and a stop to offshore oil drilling.
