BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Organizers of the Occupy Buffalo movement that grew out of Occupy Wall Street are marking the fifth anniversary.

They plan to convene in Niagara Square Wednesday evening for a candlelight vigil.

The group camped at the downtown site outside City Hall for several months until police and maintenance crews removed them in February 2012. It was one of numerous encampments that emerged around the country in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street push for economic justice.

In Buffalo, leaders of the movement say they will use the anniversary to reflect on victories and discuss solutions to continuing issues.
