(KSL News) Dozens of people today protested outside the institution they blame for our economic crisis: the Federal Reserve.
Standing outside the Federal Reserve Building on 120 S. State St. in downtown Salt Lake, protesters called on lawmakers to "End the Fed" and create sound money for America.
They believe the Fed is responsible for today's crisis, saying it has inflated the money supply and distorted free markets.
Mark Maxon, talk show host of the "Maxon Show," said, "Our objective is to garner the attention of Americans to the tune of millions so we wake up from the slumber we've been in, and we hold our Congress accountable to representing the best interest of the American people and not just industry."
The event is part of a nationwide movement against Federal Reserve banks in 39 cities.
