Occupy Austin takes over City Hall in Austin, Texas.jpg
Occupy Austin was inspired by the thousands of people who began demonstrating on Wall Street on Sept. 17. The original intent of the movement was to denounce the role that large corporations had in the financial crisis. The protesters have described themselves as the "99 percent," saying the financial system rewards the richest 1 percent at the expense of everyone else.
