The Occupy Los Angeles movement is celebrating its one year anniversary with a full day of activities downtown.

Events include a noon rally at Pershing Square, followed by a march through the Downtown Los Angeles financial district. Things will wrap up at 6 p.m. with a general assembly meeting back at Pershing Square.

Exactly one year ago, protesters took over the lawn at Los Angeles City Hall and remained there until police moved them out at the end of November.
