Several hundred people are continuing to protest in downtown Philadelphia as part of the ongoing effort to demonstrate against corporate influence on politics.


Nearly 100 tents were up at City Hall plaza Monday. The “Occupy Philadelphia” rally started Thursday and is modeled on similar events in New York and other cities in the U.S. and abroad.



A spokesman for Mayor Michael Nutter said the protests have remained peaceful.


Spokesman Mark McDonald said the group applied for a demonstration permit Friday. Unlike typical time-sensitive permits issued by the city, he said this one is open-ended because it’s unclear how long they’ll stay.


Protesters said last Monday that police, city officials and citizens have been supportive. They said they have no plans to leave and are preparing for rain expected later this week.
