‘Occupy LA’ Protesters To March Following Monday’s Rose Parade

PASADENA (CBS) — They may not have a flowery float, but “Occupy LA” protesters will be out in force during Monday’s Tournament of Roses parade.

Demonstrators, who don’t have a permit to be a part of the official parade, gathered at Singer Park Tuesday to discuss their plans for the 123rd Rose Parade.

Officials say the protesters, who were peacefully kicked out of their encampment last month, will be able to follow police cars along the parade route.

They plan to carry banners in front of a 250 foot-by-50 foot blowup of the U.S. Constitution, as well as a new version of the giant octopus puppet that was assembled during their two-month stay at City Hall.
