Just as Occupy Wall Street continues in New York City, here in Toms River some folks who identify with the cause have pledged to return every Sunday to protest as "Occupy Toms River."
The local citizens are coming to Toms River to be seen and heard about what they believe in, protesting disproportionate wealth and corporate greed. The group was out Sunday afternoon.
This is their third Occupy Toms River event and will continue to do so every Sunday starting at noon. The participants are encouraging more people to join them in walking along the park with signs as vehicles drive by honking support, they said.
The participants said they have a peaceful understanding with Toms River Police Department and are allowed to be there as long as they do not disrupt traffic on Water Street.
