Protesters in Seattle gathered at Westlake Park on Saturday morning to protest against corporations influence on the government. More than 100 people participated in “Occupy Seattle,” according to the event’s organizers.

“It’s amazing the diversity and the singular voice that we have,” said one protester.

“This is a grassroots satellite protest to bring awareness to the struggle on the streets of New York and to empower the 99% in this country,” said the Occupy Seattle website.

The “Occupy Wall Street” protest in lower Manhattan began on September 17, and has spawned similar demonstrations around the country.
