Occupy Nashville protesters march through downtown

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Hundreds of protesters marched through the streets of Nashville Saturday, echoing the protests in New York City.

Many are calling the protests "Occupy Nashville" in the same way New York's protesters are referred to as "Occupy Wall Street."

The common message is that the greed of large corporations has caused increased economic inequality in the United States.

Cory Amons, an "Occupy Nashville" protester said, "We are tired of big business buying our government, we're tired of politicians being bought by the corporations who put their interests above ours, the working people."

Jeff Howe disagreed.

He said, "A lot of people in this movement seem to want to be a victim always and it's a prominent theme I see in America today, oh poor old me."

Howe said he aligns more with the Tea Party, but came to the protest to hear what protesters had to say.
