Dozens of South Florida protesters have joined global Occupy Wall Street rallies by setting up camp outside the Miami-Dade Government Center.

A small encampment sprouted up at the downtown Miami center over the weekend. The Occupy Miami protesters say they're planning a concert at the encampment Monday evening.

The New York protests have grown from a small group camping out in a Manhattan park to thousands of people rallying around the world over the weekend. An Occupy Orlando protest Saturday drew more than 1,500 people, while about 300 people marched in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

The Occupy Miami protesters tell The Miami Herald that they're protesting at the government center without a permit and will set up camp elsewhere if they're forced to move.
