LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Over 500 hundred people marched this morning through the streets of downtown in support of the Occupy Little Rock demonstration.
The group marched to the State Capitol to voice their frustrations with the national and local economy. Participants say the income gap between rich and poor Arkansans is too great. Therefore, they took their message to the streets.
"This is a really good turnout. I am super pumped up about how everything turned out," said participant Catherine Hicks.
Demonstrators held signs and screamed chants throughout the morning.
"I believe we live in a society where corporate interests override the interests of the average citizen," said participant William Coody.
Police say there were no problems created by the group.
"These individuals have been very nice and they have cooperated," said Lt. Terry Hastings.
Hastings also said at least one window was broken overnight Friday at Bank of America, but it is unclear whether Occupy Little Rock had anything to do with it.
After the march, the protest went to the Downtown Library. But it must be over when the building closes. Participants are trying to find a permanent location to stage overnight.
