San Francisco may not have a Wall Street but it has a Market Street, which is where protesters are currently taking their cause.

Occupy Wall Street – the organization behind the ongoing protests in New York City — has officially spread to The City, with people gathering Thursday in the Financial District to rally against big banks.

The march started downtown at 555 California St. at 3 p.m. and was to target Wells Fargo, Bank of America and Chase Bank, according to the Facebook event invitation. Witnesses saw the crowd stop to chant in front of the Charles Schwab on Post at Kearny as well.

San Francisco police are on the scene and have closed off 2nd Street. Traffic on Market Street is also heavily backed up.
