Occupy movement protestors made their way to Cape Girardeau on Saturday afternoon.

About a dozen people gathered at Freedom Corner near Capaha Park.

The protestors held up signs interacting with people as they drove by.

Some of the group are students, and some have traveled all over the country for similar demonstrations.

"If you have to work two or three jobs, and hope to eventually get ahead in life that doesn't mean you are exempt from this movement," said Kerrick Long of Cape Girardeau. "It doesn't mean you won't have a right to complain. If you are working two or three jobs and still can't get ahead, that's a problem.

Organizers say it's likely not the last time they will be protesting in Cape Girardeau.
