LONDON — Protesters are marching in European cities to demonstrate against corporate greed and inequality.

The "Occupy Wall Street" protests that began in Canada and spread to cities across the U.S. were going global Saturday. In Europe, the movement is joining up with anti-austerity protests that have raged for months across the continent.

In Frankfurt, some 5,000 people took to the streets to protest in front of the European Central Bank.

Hundreds marched through the Bosnian city of Sarajevo carrying pictures of Che Guevara and old communist flags that read "Death to capitalism, freedom to the people."

Several thousands are expected to protest in Rome a day after Premier Silvio Berlusconi survived a confidence vote.

Hundreds of people also joined peaceful protests in Sydney, Tokyo, Manila, Hong Kong and Seoul.
