(Video) Occupy movement moves to smaller Minnesota cities

The Occupy Wall Street movement that started in New York and spread to large cities across the country is branching out to smaller towns in Minnesota, with protests happening or being planned in Brainerd, Rochester and Duluth.

More than 50 people gathered in front of Brainerd City Hall, holding signs reading “America’s middle class: too big to fail” and “tax Wall Street,” according to the Brainerd Dispatch.

Josh Brewster of Brainerd was holding a sign that read “Tax the richest 2 percent.” He said he attended the demonstration because he wants a future for his children. Nothing, not even a little rain, was going to keep him away Wednesday, he said.

In Duluth, more than 100 people braved a rainstorm in Lake Superior Plaza, according to the Duluth News Tribune.

Anne Fryberger of Duluth, an investment adviser and former broker who has been in the business for 25 years, held a sign saying she supported the Occupy Wall Street objective.

“I’m not against capitalism. I’m against the part of capitalism that can’t get enough and gets more and more by taking it from everyone else,” she said. “The whole system is predatory. I believe the middle class is losing ground in this country and we need to stop it.”

Duluth police told the News Tribune that protesters have been advised that they won’t be allowed to camp overnight on public property.

KIMT 3 also has a story on a group that’s organizing in Rochester, having held three meetings now, with the most recent happening in the storefront of Zeus Auto Repair.

Zane Zodrow told the station that he was “tired of politics being driven 100 percent by money instead of by principle and what the American public wants.”
