FERNDALE (WWJ) – A demonstration was held in downtown Ferndale Friday afternoon … Occupy Ferndale. Dozens of people carried picket signs on 9 Mile and Woodward roads protesting corporate greed and saying they want more oversight of Wall Street and the banks.

WWJ’s Beth Fisher spoke with Debbie Theodoroff of Ferndale asking what she hopes these protests will accomplish?

“Just that people in Washington understand that people here are paying attention — people are going to vote. It’s just time to do right by the people,” said Theodoroff.

Theodoroff says she’s putting congress on notice. There’s also an occupation going on in Downtown Detroit and some other Michigan cities, including Flint, Lansing and Traverse city.

Michael Grant of West Bloomfield was part of Occupy Ferndale.

“I’m one of the 99 percent that is just completely agravated by the agregis behavior of these corporations, the police and the government, it seems like every system is broken. And that is indeed the answer to what is your message  occupiers?  … Well, the message is in all the disperate industries we are missing money, money that used to be able to keep these things fluid,” said Grant.

Others at the protest say they hope the politicians and banks get the message.
