MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Minnesota group is planning to stage a protest in solidarity with the demonstrations that resulted in hundreds of arrests in New York.

The group OccupyMN announced they plan to assemble Friday morning at 9.a.m. Protesters will occupy the Government Plaza in downtown Minneapolis. It represents a switch in focus from the group’s previous plans.

“Previously our plans were to stand in solidarity with those that occupy Wall Street by rallying at the steps of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis,” said the group’s website. “The plan has changed to reclaim the Government Plaza as the ‘People’s Plaza.’”

There were more than 700 arrests on New York’s Brooklyn Bridge during similar protests, which have been going on for weeks now.

“We are moving to reclaim our mortgaged future,” said OccupyMN’s website.
