Occupy Lubbock brings Wall Street protest to West Texas

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Occupy Wall Street movement came to Lubbock Thursday as protestors took to the streets at 19th & University.

Protestors say they're motivated by financial inequality across the country.

One of the protestors, Andrew McMillan, says Occupy Lubbock is part of the greater movement to Occupy Wall Street.

"Occupy Wall Street is currently a force of about 25,000 people who are engaged in a non-violent peaceful protest against the top 1% of the country which controls 50% of the wealth," McMillan said.

The Occupy Wall Street protests started Sept. 17 in New York City. In the past week they have popped up in most major Texas cities.
