Benton Harbor protestors 'Occupy the PGA'

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. -- On Wednesday, Occupy the PGA protests started in Benton Harbor.

The theme? A death march, to symbolize the city of Benton Harbor being dead.

A couple dozen activists met in the morning at City Hall and marched to Jean Klock Park.

They are protesting against Harbor Shores Golf Course and Whirlpool, because they claim there are no jobs.

"If they give us jobs it would be okay for the community of Benton harbor, it would be fine but just keep a watch and watch and see what you see," said Sondra Byndum, a protestor.

The Occupy Movement has been shunned by several members of the community.

A few weeks ago, portestors ordered 25 percent of profits from the PGA go to the people of Benton Harbor.

Those demands were not met.
