LOS ANGELES (AP) — Several hundred people are staging a noisy protest against alleged corporate greed in the downtown Los Angeles financial district.

About 500 people from labor unions and activist and grassroots organizations are shouting and carrying signs Thursday outside a bank high-rise.

They're protesting in sympathy with Wall Street demonstrators in New York City who blame the poor economy on corporate greed.

Police Cmdr. Blake Chow says organizers worked with the police department to ensure the protest would be peaceful. No arrests have been made.

Demonstrators have been camping out at Los Angeles City Hall for the past week and say they may continue to do so through the winter.
