Occupy Columbia protestors cleaning up the community

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WACH) -- Some Occupy Columbia protestors temporarily left State House grounds Sunday, and put their efforts towards community clean up.

Members of the movement and residents gathered to clean up Olympia Park near Rocky Branch Creek.

The group wants the city of Columbia to consider developing the area into a greenway, instead of selling the land to developers.

Photographs of their clean up work will be presented to City Council in hopes to gain support for the greenway.
