FORT MYERS, Fla. - Southwest Florida is occupied this weekend. For the second weekend in a row, activists are taking to the streets of Fort Myers.
"The 99%", as they call themselves, say they're fighting against corporate greed.
"I think people are starting to wake up now," Protester Bruce Miller said.
A movement like this is just what Kathy Michaels was waiting for. The Fort Myers woman protested the Vietnam War in the 60's.
"We're, quite frankly, fed up with how the government is running," Michaels said.
The boisterous crowd marched and chanted down First Street in the River District, making a stop at the Wells Fargo downtown. The corporate banking giant received $25 billion in the bailout.
"We want money out of our government and to actually let the people govern the country, not the corporate America which has been doing it," protester Antoinette Moore said.
The largest critique of the "Occupy" movement is they don't have a message. Governor Rick Scott even said so himself.
"Over time, I'm sure they would get more organized, as far as what they're interested in," Scott said.
Scott said he's not sure if the occupiers will have as much political force as the Tea Party, which led him to the Governor's mansion.
But Kathy Michaels is sure. "We've been waiting, our time has come," Michaels said. "And we will have an impact on the elections. Yes ma'am!"
Saturday's protests also included a march through downtown Naples. Demonstrators started at City Hall, then marched down Fifth Avenue. Organizers say they were inspired by calls to make October 15th an international day of protest.
