SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Members of the Occupy Wall Street movement in San Francisco say they plan to celebrate their first year with a demonstration.

Activists say they plan to take to the streets with a march Monday afternoon from Justin Herman Plaza to the city's Financial District and then with an evening rally outside the Bank of America building on California Street, the site of previous protests.

Last year, hundreds of protesters camped out for weeks at the public plaza across from the city's Ferry Building, a magnet for tourists and in the heart of the Financial District where nearby businesses were affected.

In Oakland, a metal fence now surrounds the City Hall lawn that was the hub of several violent clashes between activists and police during fall Occupy-inspired protests that attracted international attention.
