Several hundred protesters gathered in front of City Hall in Los Angeles on Saturday to show solidarity with the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters in lower Manhattan.

They chanted slogans such as, “Hey hey, ho ho! Wall Street greed has got to go!” and “The people united will never be defeated.”

“Corporate interests seem to be controlling both parties,” one protester previously told the blog LAactivist.com. “The ‘little man,’ the ‘American every man,’ just isn’t getting their voice heard. When you need $35,000 to donate to a campaign to get your voice heard, to have a meeting, that’s not democracy.”

Conservative activist Chuck Muth said that he temporarily switched parties to vote for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in the Nevada caucuses.

Muth, who spoke to the Las Vegas Journal-Review while wearing a red Keep America Great hat, explained that he had crossed over to “vote for the weakest candidate possible of the Democrats.”
