Video has emerged of Occupy Boston protesters yelling outside the local Fox affiliate’s station on Monday. The protesters walked through downtown Boston towards Fox-25′s studio, shouting “Fascist media, corporate media.”

Despite being in the shadows of Occupy Wall Street, the Occupy Boston movement has attracted over 3,600 followers on micro-blogging website Twitter. Last week, in a protest hosted by a different group, 3,000 people marched towards Bank of America in Boston. Twenty-four people were arrested in that protest.

Fox News, of course, is a much different operation than local Fox affiliates, which generally aren’t subject to the politics of News Corporation’s national network.

WATCH: Video from Youtube, which appeared on October 3, 2011.
