Hundreds of people are camped out in New York City, in protest against a failing economy. They're in their third week of what they're calling “Occupy Wall Street,” and the protests are spreading. The movement took hold in Boston on Monday when demonstrators marched from downtown to the statehouse. Similar protests have happened in other U.S. cities, and several are planned in Ohio this week. It all began in lower Manhattan nearly three weeks ago, when people began gathering in a park near Wall Street. Protesters say they are upset at the financial system’s responsibility for the down economy and what they call “corporate greed.” Susan Candiotti takes us inside the heart of the protest.
