'Occupy Wall Street' protest scheduled in Spartanburg

SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A protest against Wall Street, like hundreds that have been held all over the country, has been scheduled for Thursday and Friday in Spartanburg.

The demonstration originally started in New York and focused on Wall Street and corporate greed. However, as the protests have spread to other locations, demonstrators have added a number of other grievances like police brutality, global warming and the death penalty.

According to the permit filed with Spartanburg police, the rally was called a "solidarity demonstration" as part of the "Occupy Wall Street" protest in New York City.

The protest will be held at Morgan Square in downtown Spartanburg from 8 a.m. Thursday to 8 a.m. Friday, according to the permit.

The permit said about 50 people would be participating.
