Two members of the anti-war activist group CodePink on Saturday arrived at the “Occupy Wall Street” protest in lower Manhattan.

“We are here with the 99 percent to say that we’ve had enough of the corruption and greed on Wall Street,” said on activist, Mel.

“I’ve been to Tahrir square in Egypt and I’ve been to Madison, Wisconsin, and this is just the same kinds of energy,” CodePink co-founder Medea Benjamin added.

The group is trying to help the “Occupy Wall Street” protest by leading a women’s media training workshop.
