Hundreds of protesters are marching in Dallas, Houston and Austin to join the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations demanding an end to corruption in politics and business.

Several hundred marchers worked their way to the Federal Reserve Building in Dallas. A similar number marched from the J.P. Morgan Chase building in Houston to City Hall. Several dozen demonstrators also gathered at Austin's City Hall.

Organizers of the protests say they plan to occupy the locations for as long as possible. The main Occupy Wall Street protests began Sept. 17 and have spread across the country.

Protesters are asking supporters to close accounts in major banks and to move money into credit unions. They also want reforms to campaign finance.

So far there have no reports of arrests.
