 COSTA MESA — A small group of OccupyOC protesters occupied the lines of Black Friday shoppers at South Coast Plaza last night. The protesters started out in front of Best Buy in South Coast Metro at around 10:30 pm, then marched to Old Navy and Macy’s. There were about two dozen protesters participating in the demonstration that was designed to encourage people to votes with their dollars this holiday season and buy from local businesses rather than the large corporations.

Orange County photographer Marc Perkins was on hand for the demonstration and got some pictures which he asked us to share with our readers.

    Nice banner there. It was courtesy of Occupy Santa Ana.

    Of course, I would bet that not one, single shopper left the line at any of the corporate stores. Are there even any small businesses in SC? Maybe it is time for #Occupy to evolve or dissolve. The message doesn’t seem to be getting through to the 99% or the 1%.
