    Occupy Las Vegas


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter cheryllvnv snapped these photos of Occupy Las Vegas protests on Las Vegas' Fremont Street. She says demonstrators walked in cadence with drums, chanting slogans such as 'we are the 99%', 'banks got bailed out-we got sold out', and 'this is what democracy looks like.'
    - Echerneff, CNN iReport producer

    Las Vegans marched on Fremont Street Oct. 15 to the beat of drummers and chants of "This is what democracy looks like." The 700-plus-person group of peaceful protestors replaced Elvis impersonators, show girls and street performers as the downtown Saturday-night spectacle that entertained photo-snapping tourists, many of which nodded and waved their approval, while others joined the march. This is the second Las Vegas march and first of a series of demonstrations scheduled over the next couple weeks by oocupylasvegas.org.
