"Occupy Denver" is the local protest based on the larger "Occupy Wall Street" protests in New York City. It was one of many similar events being held across the country.

Protesters say they are a "leaderless resistance movement," and the one thing they have in common is they will no longer "tolerate the greed and corruption of Wall Street."

According to a pamphlet passed out at the event, the protesters say, "We are the 99 percent that will not longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the one percent."

A few weeks ago, the "Occupy Wall Street" protesters, carrying signs, marched up 5th Avenue in lower Manhattan.

Dozens of people were arrested, and now the movement has gone national.

Denver Police say there were no issues with the protest in Denver, and no one was arrested.
