BALTIMORE -- With "Occupy Wall Street" protests filling the streets of New York, organizers in Maryland hoped to bring the same energy to "Occupy Baltimore."
However, few people actually showed up to the Inner Harbor to protest against corporate greed and corruption.
"I'm a small business, I've been working for 40 years," says Lani Miller, who owns a jewelry store. She says the economy means she can't expand her business to hire new people.
Many also said Baltimore is an example of how politics and business have turned their backs on the people. While pointing to a homeless man, one protestor said "I'm here for guys like him ... We need to do more to help the needy."
The "Occupy Wall Street" people plan on expanding to College Park, with a student walk-out at the University of Maryland to protest rising tuition prices and student debt issues.
