Occupy Grand Rapids holds first rally of 2012

GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)-Occupy Grand Rapids held its first rally of the year Saturday.

As part of the event, the group organized the "Really Really Free Market" where everyone was encouraged to bring items they no longer needed for others that might want it. Occupy members say the swap is meant to limit landfill waste while helping out community members struggling with unemployment and mounting bills.

"It's one of the ways we figured out to try to help the community; be a positive presence," said one occupy member who only wanted to be known as Sarah.

Occupy Grand Rapids members say they suspended regular Saturday rallies at Monument Park when the cold weather crept in. Now that the temperatures are warmer, the free events are expected to return.
