    Rally on Wall Street to 'Bailout the People'

    Protesters called on the government to "bail out the people" during a rally that worked its way up  Wall Street on Friday. 

    Those attending the rally said normal citizens should get some of the billions of dollars being spent to save big business and banks.

    The rally started in downtown Manhattan with a march down Broadway and ends at the iconic statue of a bull on Wall Street.  Hundreds of people turned out even as a steady rain fell  across the City.

    The men, women and children are protesting near the offices of financial giants like Fidelity, American Express, the Federal Reserve and the New York Stock Exchange.
