Protesters walk through downtown St. Louis on Saturday.
Downtown St. Louis saw dozens of protesters this weekend marching outside the Federal Reserve, Bank of America, Kiener Plaza and other landmarks.

OccupySTL was a smaller version of Occupy Wall Street, a massive demonstration in New York City that resulted in some 700 arrests over the weekend. Protesters there and here say they're marching for 99 percent of Americans who've seen their income and economic opportunities diminish over the past decade.

Daily RFT freelance photographer Brian Villa was downtown Saturday and sent us over the following pics.

That is the biggest group of pissed off middle class white people I have seen since the traffic jam following the last Dave Matthews Band at Verizon.

Beautiful days to be outside. Could a few of you actually attack some specific abuses?Go over to the Cardinals office and demand they give the City the ticket tax-probably$5 million a year if you pro-rate the expensive sky boxes. Go over to the Dome andtell Stan he can pay off the Dome Bonds, the county  hotel-motel tax is excessive and is one of the reasons so few people fly to St. Louis. Go out to Danforth Plant Science not-for-profitand tell the to PAY the 3,000 they want to volunteer to fill care packages.They have more money than all the gods put together.  City Garden never hurt you. You are in the wrong place.

It is possible that they got there early and didn't see the people that marched down from the organizational meeting beforehand...
