In The Region:

Hundreds of people are expected to show up Thursday on Cleveland’s Public Square for a protest called Occupy Cleveland.

It’s an offshoot of Occupy Wall Street, which started in mid-September when a group setup camp in downtown Manhattan. They’re calling for bankers to pay more in taxes.

Northeast Ohio congresswoman Betty Sutton joined the protests in New York Wednesday during a labor rally. The Copley Democrat says she heard a lot of talk about jobs, but what stuck out to her the most was a sign that read, “When did standing up for the middle class become extreme.”

“It’s the message that we hear … in Ohio and across the county. And anything we can do to try and gather support around that idea. Any message I can take from here and deliver to Washington, just like I take the message from Ohio of people wanting us to focus on jobs and standing up for the middle class. And having those who’ve done well in America do well by America.”

Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich released a video Tuesday also expressing his support for the Occupy Wall Street protests.
