PASCO, WA- Occupy Tri-Cities expects close to 1,000 people to join their protest Saturday in Pasco in Volunteer Park right across the street from Pasco City Hall.

The group Occupy Tri-Cities said they have received calls from all over the country from people supporting their protest.  There have even been calls all the way from Ferguson, Missouri supporting the cause.

Friday, they gathered in front of City Hall to organize how Saturday will play out. 

"We see how many people are understanding and supporting with Antonio's family.  We want to see that support and we want to make sure we're organized and can move forward with real meaningful solutions," said Jeremy Peterson.

Occupy Tri-Cities also reminded those joining the demonstration that this is a peaceful protest.

The group plans to march from Volunteer Park to the intersection where police shot Antonio Zambrano-Montes.

Police have not released what streets will be blocked off Saturday.  The protest is expected to start at noon and go until around 6 p.m.
