COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Occupy Columbia protesters are holding a series of events to mark legislators' return to the Statehouse.
The group says it is holding a march and rally at the Statehouse on Saturday.
There are also a teach-in, poetry reading and various speakers scheduled.
State lawmakers gaveled in this year's session on Tuesday.
Last month, Occupy Columbia protesters removed their tents and camping gear from the Statehouse after a federal judge approved new rules prohibiting camping on the capitol's grounds.
Protesters also left a tent as a Christmas present for South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, who fought for more than a month to kick them off the Statehouse complex.
