LETHBRIDGE: A protest that's been sweeping across North America makes its stop in Lethbridge Saturday morning.
The Occupy movement is a protest against economic in-equality globally.
Blaine Greenwood is helping to organize the local event. He explained that there message isn't against corporations and those who charge larger sums for their services. He stated that "when you charge so much that you become part of a ruling class, well everybody else is being kicked out of their houses, that is something that is no longer acceptable to society".
Greenwood went on to say that greed is a major problem that they want to focus on, adding that major projects both locally and across the country that are for entertainment purposes are a problem, when you consider the number of people living in low income housing or on the street.
The event gets started at the University of Lethbridge students union building Saturday morning at 10, and will move to city hall at 11 for sign making. Then starting at noon the peaceful assembly will hold an open mic session for anyone interested to voice their concerns. They will then march around downtown Lethbridge, making stops at financial institutions and at MP Jim Hillyers office. The event will wrap up at 2:00 with another open mic session at city hall.
