Wall Street protesters to stage rallies in NJ

By Associated Press

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - Local protests against corporate
America are planned in New Jersey as a show of solidarity with
demonstrations that started last month outside the New York Stock
Exchange.

Rallies are planned Thursday in Jersey City and at the Statehouse in Trenton. Protesters are expected to call for an end of what they say is corporate control of government.

The initial protests in New York, called Occupy Wall Street, started Sept. 17 and have since spread to other cities.

According to the Occupy New Jersey Facebook page, the New Jersey protests are slated to start at 2 p.m.
