Last week, “Occupy” protests against corporate greed sprung up all over the country. From Boston to San Francisco and everywhere in-between, the “99 percent” have become a legitimate political movement.

The same is true in Cleveland, Ohio, where “a small town” has formed on the Public Square, according to local media. Much like the other “Occupy” protests, activists seem determined to maintain a very public presence until there is some significant change in the country’s economic policies. About three dozen protesters have held the square since last Thursday.

The video below is from Cleveland’s News Net 5, broadcast Monday, Oct. 10, 2011.
