Occupy Philly Marches to Stock Exchange

The second day of protests from "Occupy Philadelphia" is underway in Center City.

On Friday, around 5:30 p.m., protesters began to march around City Hall to the Philadelphia Stock Exchange.

The group also set up a small tent city at City Hall early Friday morning.

On Thursday, several hundred people carrying signs protested peacefully outside the government building in a rally modeled after similar protests in New York and other places. The demonstrations are aimed at condemning corporate greed and its influence on government.

Mayor Michael Nutter visited with protesters overnight, answered questions and posed for pictures.

As of now, the protests have remained peaceful and no arrests have been made.

City officials have said the group is welcome to stay for now, but officials have also encouraged them to get a permit.
