Protesters planning to "Occupy Memphis"

(WMC-TV) - With Occupy Wall Street protests approaching their 24th day, people in Memphis are planning an occupation of the Bluff City.

Dozens of people gathered at Overton Park Sunday evening to organize the occupation.  Members of the movement told the group that there is no leader of their assembly and each person in the group has equal say.

After discussing protests at Confederate Park, the Pyramid, and Beale Street, the group chose the Civic Center Plaza.

Occupy Memphis voted to tentatively hold the protest next Saturday at the area also known as the Main Street mall in front of the Memphis City Administrative building.

Occupy Memphis plans to finalize the vote Monday.
