Protestors began to gather Friday at McPherson Park in Greenville as a part of the nationwide Occupy protests.
According to the Occupy Greenville Facebook page, organizers plan to protest Friday through Jan. 16, 2012, at McPherson Park.
As of 11 a.m., a FOX Carolina reporter said about eight people were protesting in the park.
McPherson Park is located in downtown Greenville, at the intersection of North Academy and North Main streets behind Springwood Cemetery.
On Thursday, Occupy Wall Street supporters protested in Morgan Square in Spartanburg. More than 30 protestors stayed in the square, marching through occasional rain with signs that read "Greed is not a moral value" and "Get Wall St. out of government."
The Spartanburg protest was organized by Deborah Morrow, a 60-year-old grandmother from Inman. She said Wall Street crashed the economy and there were crimes committed.
"Trillions of dollars of wealth were lost," Morrow said. "No one has been held accountable for it."
It's the first protest of its kind in South Carolina, but people in Columbia, Greenville and Florence are trying to organize similar protests.
The Occupy Wall Street protests in New York have been going on for four weeks, with the movement slowly spreading across the country.
