PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Occupy activists say they are planning a peaceful protest at the Rose Parade on Jan. 2.
Pete Thottam, spokesman and organizer behind Occupy the Rose Parade says they have spent more than 20 hours meeting with the Pasadena Police Department and Rose Parade staff.
The group is planning a series of "floats" after the end of the parade including a giant octopus made of recycled bags and a blow up of the Constitution. Picketers will also carry banners with slogans from the movement such as "Corporate Money Out of Politics."
Thottam says the group feels as though there is too much corporate money involved in the parade.
The Occupy Wall Street protest began Sept. 17 in front of the New York Stock Exchange and has since spread to other cities.
