During a previous Occupy Maui protest in October, a variety of signs sought more attention on jobs, criticizing government for cuts and greed. File photo by Wendy Osher.

Supporters on Maui of the Occupy Wall Street Protests plan to host a sign waving campaign in Kahului tomorrow afternoon.

The “Make Wall Street Pay” sign waving event will run from 4 to 6 p.m. fronting the Queen Ka’ahumanu shopping center.

Organizers of the event have expressed concern over unemployment and foreclosures on the island.

“It is wrong that Wall Street banks take their profits and actively work against the Jobs Bill and other bills that would help middle class families,” said Karen Chun, one of the event organizers.

“Their reckless greed caused us to lose our homes and jobs. We bailed out the big banks. Their thanks is to block any help for us,” she said.

A similar protest was conducted down the street in front of the Old Kahului Shopping Center on October 16, 2011.
