The Occupy Fremont protest is happening now in downtown Las Vegas. 

The protest has closed traffic on Casino Center between Carson Avenue and Ogden. The march started at Las Vegas City Hall.

Protesters say they chose Martin Luther King Jr. Day for their protest because they feel the rights of homeless people are being trampled on.
