FORT MYERS, Fla.- Occupy Fort Myers will hold an organizational meeting at Centennial Park Saturday evening at 7. Organizers hope at least 200 people will attend. Fort Myers Police have scheduled extra patrols, to ensure a peaceful gathering.
"We need to show that we are fed up with this economy and with how corporate greed is taking over," said Tia Willin, a mother of four who is planning to attend the meeting. She lives in Cape Coral.
"We need changes at all levels of government. We need to take back the government and the voices we have lost. It is just not right that 1 percent of people control the resources that 99 percent of people have to purchase. We need morals and values, not just greed taking over everything," said Willin.
The movement has staged protests in New York and other cities nationwide.
