The Occupy Wall Street protests against corporate greed spread around the country and the globe Saturday, with a crowd of 3,000 to 5,000 reported in downtown Seattle.
Participants in Seattle were out representing a wide range of causes, such as protesting the war or Middle East policy, or just to support the right for protesters to camp in Westlake Park, The Seattle Times reports.
And protests also took place in Olympia, Spokane and in Vancouver, Wash., where about 700 people demonstrated against what they described as undue influence by corporations in American life, The Associated Press reports.
