‘Occupy LA’ Protest Expected To Cause Traffic Delays Thursday

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A coalition of labor unions and community groups have announced plans for a massive march in support of the “Occupy LA” encampment.

More than 1,000 protesters are planning to shut down streets in downtown Los Angeles at 7 a.m. Thursday.

They will meet at the Bank of America plaza on Hope Street and march to the corner of Figueroa and Fourth streets, where they plan to shut down the intersection and drop large banners from nearby overpasses.

Demonstrators say rush hour drivers should expect serious delays and street closures in downtown Los Angeles near the 110 Freeway.

There will be additional marches around noon Thursday.
