Day of Action for Occupy groups
In cities across Michigan, Occupy groups are holding protests.
It's part of a national "Day of Action," called following clashes in some cities between Occupy protesters and police ordered to evict them from city parks. Occupy encampments in Michigan have either been allowed to continue or are breaking up for the winter with little or no police intervention.
In Flint, a small group of sign waving protesters stood outside city hall at noon.
A man who identified himself as Shadee said the movement is still coming together.
"And that’s what we need is for people to come together…from all walks of life…from different factions…and make our voices heard," said Shadee. "Hopefully we can change the system around to one that benefits the people…and not just corporations, you know."
The Occupy Wall Street movement started two months ago in New York.
